Video: attempted tiger shark cannibalism

Vimeo user CaptainCankles posted the above video, which, according to the video description, shows a 15′ tiger shark (Galeocerdo cuvier) apparently attempting to eat a smaller 7′ tiger shark. The smaller of the two sharks had been hooked by a fisherman prior to the event. The larger shark appears to spit out the smaller shark at the end of the video.

    Hmm.

    I would reckon it is a more established apex predator eliminating an unrelated competitor by direct means of violence. The damage inflicted- the shark’s mind stays serene.
