Shark swallowed whole by large fish
#1
https://www.independent.co.uk/news/scien...99886.html



Ocean explorers have captured rare video of a large wreckfish eating a shark whole, in a clip showing a group of the underwater predators devouring a swordfish on the ocean floor.

The video was posted by the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), which said that it was able to capture footage of the events as they unfolded thanks to a remote operated camera in an area that researchers originally thought was a shipwreck.

Instead of a shipwreck, they came across a group of sharks “in what looked to be a feeding frenzy”, devouring the flesh of a 2.5-metre long swordfish. As this was happening, they then saw the giant wreckfish swimming along with a whole shark in its mouth.

NOAA wrote in a blog post that they believe that the school of sharks, which aren’t normally found in groups, must have been drawn to the swordfish carcass “from a distance”.



Wow, I had no idea sharks ever got eaten by other fish :O ! I suppose this one was pretty small for a shark, but even so.

I wonder how long it'll be before these fish appear in a Jaws sequel :P ?

If anything, this fish seems more obese than the shark it's swallowing :P .

So, maybe these smaller sharks need a new name? Or perhaps the wreckfish does :lol: ?
