I Wouldn't Touch That

As their wounded mom rests in the car, Lia and Alfie sneak out to spend some time on the beach. The siblings check out a lonely crab and spot the carcass of an Orca. Something weird seems to be stuck to the dead mammal. Lia gets creeped out as she notices all the birds have vanished. She warns her brother, but he brushes her off. Lia huffs and stomps back to the vehicle. Her brother decides to have a closer look.
