Turtles eating watermelon, bugs, carrots, and apples. What does it sound like when turtles take a bit of a few of their favorite foods? This video by The Fish Whisperer captures the crunch and scurry sounds that aquatic turtles make as they eat a few human-provided treats.

Why are they scurrying back to the pond after each bite? An answer from the Veterinary Centers of America: “All aquatic turtles eat and swallow with their head underwater and will not eat out of the water.” Also, check out these faces:
