A sunbather’s relaxing float turned into chaos when a turtle bit into her lilo before swimming after her.

While sunbathing in Exuma, Bahamas, on March 25 Stephanie Sandiland didn’t expect her fun, and lilo, would be popped thanks to a large turtle snapping away.

After taking a bite at the lilo, the angry Turtle returned to the scene of the crime, causing panicked Stephanie to fall screaming into the clear blue waters.

Like a scene out of Jaws, Stephanie had to scramble aboard and to safety away from the snap happy turtle.

Brendan Butler, who filmed it all, said: “I thought it was rather funny at the time. But that big Turtle could’ve taken a finger off though.”
