Video: Bull Shark Bites Another Shark Clean in Half


Fair warning, if you have a weak stomach, you may want to skip this video.

Sharks are oftentimes the undisputed masters of the ocean, but that doesn’t mean that they are necessarily safe from other sharks. After all, there are plenty of shark species large and small—most of which won’t turn down a free meal. These kayak anglers off Palm Beach got the scare of a lifetime after a large bull shark suddenly attacked the 4-foot blacktip they had on the line. What’s more, the larger shark bit its prey cleanly in two in just one bite.

Another reminder that bull sharks, which can grow up to 11 feet long and 700 pounds, are essentially well-muscled torpedoes. The angler added that this particular shark ended up pulling him a quarter mile out to sea.

“Fishing the outflow from a Nuclear Power Plant in a kayak my friend KC hooks into a 4 foot black tip shark only to have it ripped in half by a very large Bull Shark and it didn’t stop after that,” he wrote on YouTube. “I did my best to get some video of the attack from my paddle board. Wow, that was crazy.”

Maybe it was something in the water. Fishing near a nuclear power plant is not always eventful, but when it is, you always start to wonder.
