Well, thse guys definately are not Great Whites. They are almost certainly Makos, as the shape of their snout and fins, as well as the size of their eyes matches with that of Makos. Great Whites are more robust.
... Althiugh the one at the bottom may be a Blue shark, after all.
I don't know enough about sharks to say for certain what kind they are. I just thought it was an interesting piece of news and as someone commented, I believe it's rare to see one shark go after another shark like that.

The shark probably just sensed a struggling animal splashing around on the surface so went for it. Same reason they get humans sometimes by mistake. You cna see int he picture it has it's eye rolled back so must have came in fast and probably didn't know it's target until after it had taken a bite.

Two species. Therefore not cannibalism. Also dangling the smaller shark as bait smacks of animal cruelty.
Doubtful the man was dangling the shark as bait; it is not easy to land a struggling shark. When you catch a fish it struggles on the line and the struggle is correctly interpreted by a predator as an easy meal. I have had fish on the line cut in half by barracuda before we could land them, and you only end up with a fish head on your line.
