Tonight's episode of Blue Planet Live left viewers gobsmacked as a seagull swooped down and plucked one of the baby turtles which the presenter was in the middle of talking about.
What was supposed to be a heartwarming account of the 'precious' hatchling's first few hours on Australia's Heron Island turned into a nightmare when the bird snatched it from right under Liz Bonnin's nose.
Social media immediately exploded with hundreds of stunned people sharing their collective shock at the mortifying clip - with one of the audience even claiming to be 'traumatised'.

Moments before the hungry seagull's arrival, Liz said: 'We've watched them come up to the sands of Heron to nest and we've also had the great privilege of watching precious new lives, little hatchings emerging from nests and making it in the big blue.
She then explained that, with conservationist Liz Fergurson, a batch of five newborn turtles would be released into the sea.
