National Geographic has released this soon-to-be classic photograph of one shark eating another shark whole. The photo comes from Daniela Ceccarelli, of Australia’s Research Council Center of Excellence for Coral Reef Studies. Ceccarelli was working with fellow researcher David Williamson on conducting a “fish census” off Great Keppel Island, part of the country’s Great Barrier Reef. That’s when Ceccarelli thought she spotted a brown-banded bamboo shark hanging out near the ocean’s floor.
How bad ass are sharks? This comes close to an anaconda eating something gigantic, but it’s not as good. Think about the sheer logistics of this meal! An entire shark – I can only wonder how that’s going to sit. My bet is this guy is going to be in a post-Thanksgiving dinner state for a few days.
