A remarkable photo of a shark attempting to eat another shark has gone viral since appearing on-line.
The picture was taken off Kaiteriteri Beach near Nelson in New Zealand by a Reddit user who goes by the name 'Mancubus'. The image shows a small school shark caught on a fishing line while underneath the lower part of its body has been caught in the jaws of a much larger blue shark. It's an unusual and fascinating image and one that has gained a huge amount of attention since appearing on the Internet.
"Blue sharks often steal fish off people's lines at this time of year and they also commonly eat other shark species," said shark expert and marine scientist Clinton Duffy. While both species are common to the waters around New Zealand the blue shark is becoming more of a rarity in the region due to the practice of shark-finning.
A spectacular photo believed to have been taken off Kaiteriteri Beach near Nelson in New Zealand proves it's a shark-eat-shark world out there – and that you should always watch your tail.
