    Well the scale is a bit off, but a few years ago in the Tuamotus, I watched a large O. cyanea attack and kill a 20 inch green turtle. It managed to get a couple of arms aroung the turtles neck and held on for several minutes until the turtle was dead. I don't know where the bit was delivered, but it was an impressive struggle.
