Deep-sea fish eats the whole shark: video

NOAA

The video was taken by the United States National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration using a remote-controlled underwater vehicle Deep Discoverer - at a depth of approximately 450 meters, approximately 130 kilometers off the coast of South Carolina. First, in the video, you can see how many prickly sharks eat the remains of a 2.5-meter swordfish (why this swordfish died, scientists do not know: perhaps due to age-related changes or illness).

Later, a large fish Polyprion americanus appears (representatives of this species, as you know, can reach a length of 210 centimeters and weigh 100 kilograms) - eating one of the sharks in its entirety.
