Giant fish chows down on whole shark
In a rare video captured by the NOAA, a giant wreckfish was seen trying to eat up an entire shark.
THE DEEP SEA — The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration captured rare footage of a wreckfish trying to gobble up an entire shark while swimming in the deep sea.
The video also shows a bunch of sharks swimming towards a dead swordfish and feasting on the creature's skin and muscle tissue as it lies still on the seafloor.
On their website, NOAA explains that deep-sea sharks aren't usually seen gathering together like unless there is food available in the surrounding area.
The footage was captured by the remotely operated vehicle Deep Discoverer during the NOAA's Windows to the Deep expedition last year.
