IT’S A SHARK EAT SHARK WORLD: The Delicate Balance of Nature is Brutal

On what was a routine shark tag retrieval mission, the crew at University of Delaware’s Ocean Exploration, Remote Sensing, Biogeography Lab (or ORB Lab) managed to take a once-in-a-lifetime photo. In the above image, a sand tiger shark had wrapped its jaws around a smaller dogfish shark, which in turn swallowed a menhaden that was used as bait. Sand tiger sharks make a diet out out of their smaller cousins, but rarely can any angler boast of catching two sharks with one bait fish.

“We caught one large female on our first line Friday, but we were not expecting to catch her like this!” ORB Lab wrote on their Facebook page.
