Apex Predators In Action

This challenge closed over 4 years ago.

The Challenge

markosixty6 Topic
For this challenge he would like to see Apex Predators in action whether on land or sea. Apex Predators are predators that have virtually no predators of their own, residing at the top of their food chain. Apex predator species are often at the top of long food chains, where they have a crucial role in maintaining the health of their ecosystems.
Predation in its zoological sense is the killing and consumption of another organism, which excludes bacteria and parasites from the apex predator concept. Apex predators need not be hypercarnivores. For example, grizzly bears and humans are each apex predators, and yet they are omnivores that eat considerable vegetable material as well as much meat. Some animals may be superpredators in some environments but not others. Remember the image must show some kind of action.
