A shark has been caught on camera chowing down on another one.
The picture was taken during a fish census on the reef off Great Keppel Island, conducted by the Australian Research Council’s Centre of Excellence for Coral Reef Studies.
“During the 30-min observation period,” the researchers said, “neither shark moved … we assume that it would have taken at least several more hours for the wobbegong to completely consume the bamboo shark.”
