It's like a scene straight out of IT, when Penny Wise turns into a monster and you see all of his nasty teeth. Not many people would compare the mouth and esophagus of a Sea Turtle to a fictional serial killer monster that is topping the box office at the moment, but it is all I can think of while looking into that mouth.
The mouth of a Sea Turtle is full of sharp barbs that face inward. Guess what they are for and listen to the episode to find out their function.
Do you think the barbs are a smart adaptation? Let me know in the facebook group (I will also share pictures in the facebook group): http://www.speakupforblue.com/group.
