looks like a school shark being eaten by a blue shark (possibly, teeth look too small for a great white to me anyways). rather common in new zealand apparently. great white eating a great white though? lol.

Ah.. the Daily Mail..
Great White? my backside... As I've mentioned before, I used to run a marine research centre in Port Lincoln, South Australia - one of the best places to find these magnificent but STOCKY creatures:
I know exactly what Great Whites look like - and neither of those in the OP link are anything like GW's, especially not that tiny pup on the line..

Yes there is....... From the article -
The larger shark, also a Great White, had obviously decided he'd be the one to gobble the fish up.
I'm referring to the original article from the "Sydney Morning Herald" in Australia.
The Mail just put Great White into their article to vamp the story up.

I agree they are probably not great whites, their snouts are typically conical, and their countershading border is below the eyes. Both of these appear to have a more flatten snout, and the countershading border is even with the lower edge of the eyes.
Not sure if they are makos (teeth aren't jagged) or blues (snout not every long) either, but could be bronze whalers or also called copper sharks. They are among the commonly seen around New Zealand and can reach 4m.
