Thresher sharks stun prey with tail slaps

2 posts in this topic

Thresher sharks use their impressive tails to stun lots of prey at once with sharp overhead "tail slaps", scientists have confirmed.

The sharks' scythe-like tails make up half the length of their body, so it had long been suspected that the animals used them as hunting weapons.

Footage of the predators using their tail to stun and kill sardines has finally confirmed this.
