Watch a Group of Sharks Devour a Whale Corpse


Christmas came a bit early for a frenzy of sharks in Western Australia, and a tour group was lucky enough to witness the unwrapping of the present. According to Mashable, in an area appropriately called Shark Bay, passengers aboard a cruise from Geraldton to Broome came across the group of tiger sharks as they were feasting on a dead humpback whale. The company, Eco Abrolhos, pieced together aerial drone footage of the gruesome event. Dozens of sharks can be seen circling the corpse, awaiting their turn to take a bite, and the footage is full of shots of blood in the water and close-ups of the carcass—so maybe don't watch this during your lunch break.
