Something in the Ocean is Eating Great White Sharks. This mystery got the attention of researchers off the Australian Coast who tagged a healthy adult to try and find out which creature is capable of such a monstrous fete.
A black box found washed up on the beach contained information that the specimen indeed maliciously devoured. Other astounding evidence held the key to revealing the identity of this brutal super predator.
The tracking device captured temperature, depth and location for up to four months. The area where the 9 footer was tracked last is used by migrating Great Whites. Data suggests that a far much larger predator with impressive capacity- an estimated 16 feet, weighing over 2 tones- was capable of pulling the same speed and trajectory stunts captured on the device.
A monstrous bully shark. Large, lethal and agile. One to make a quick meal out of a Great White.
Several theories have been formulated to try and get to this astonishing fact. Documentaries suggest that larger sharks prey on smaller sharks all the time. It is known that when smaller sharks sense a larger one nearby, they immediately vacate those parts.
Hunger, territorial disputes or even bullying are valid reasons for these murky depths to change into confrontation zones at an instant.
The search for the ocean's super predator led to the discovery of a colossal cannibal Great White shark. Huge and ferocious to counter even an A-list predator at the slightest provocation. A process intended to catalog these great whites led to an even more astounding case of a super predator that takes up a dominant first place in the hierarchy.
A real life monster revered by its fellow species, one best avoided any day.
