This Shark Was Hungry Enough to Eat One of its Own


It's not every day that you see a shark eating another shark, but for some aquarium goers in South Korea, it was quite an eventful day when they were able to capture on video a larger shark having made a meal out of one of the smaller sharks in the tank.

The larger shark was an eight-year-old female and the smaller shark was a five-year-old male. It's not known exactly why the larger shark ate the smaller one.

COEX Aquarium personnel said they expect the tail will be indigestible and the female shark will likely regurgitate it and other parts of the undigested shark into the tank.
