Shocked Scientists Watch as Wreckfish Eats a Whole Shark

Shocked Scientists Watch as Wreckfish Eats a Whole Shark

Here’s something you don’t see each day: a whole shark gulped by a fish.

Scientists from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Okeanos Explorer viewed progressively a month ago as the ship’s remote vehicle caught film of a feeding frenzy. At any rate 11 little sharks of two kinds ― the Genie’s dogfish and rough skin dogfish ― were devouring a dead 250-pound swordfish that had tumbled to the seafloor at a profundity of 1,476 feet.

Yet, nearby, a sneaking wreckfish seemed to utilize the remote vehicle for spread, and it had another supper as a primary concern: Shark.

When one hungry shark strayed excessively a long way from the frenzy, the wreckfish moved in for a nibble ― or perhaps it was to a greater degree a swallow.

It has an entire shark in its mouth, according to an analyst.

“No way!” said another.
