On the beach of Pinacle Rock Galapagos, a nest of baby turtles just started to hedge, when we were there. It was a beuatiful sight. But wihtin a few minutes frigatebirds started to circle over and tried to catch the young hedglings. We succeeeded to build a wall against them on the beach, but in the water, the little turtles were helpless. The frigate brids enjoyed their turtle soup. I think not many of them survived.
