Best Answer

Young turtles and turtle eggs are favorite foods of many small carnivores, including seabirds, coyotes, raccoons, and even crawfish, to name just a few. For smaller species of turtles, the shell is adequate protection against most predators, although crocodiles and humans are able to eat them. Large tortoises have no predators except humans.
