“Swimming with the sharks” took on new meaning at a Korean aquarium recently.
An older sand tiger shark at Seoul’s COEX Aquarium recently ended a territorial dispute with a young male shark by devouring him whole.
According to a Jan. 29, 2016, UPI story, the 8-year-old female shark, 7.2 feet long, began eating the 5-year-old 3.9 foot long male shark, head first. The victorious shark slowly ate her rival, one bite at a time, until only his tail was sticking out of her mouth.
Aquarium officials explain that the female shark probably will “regurgitate its swallowed rival during the next few days, as she is unlikely to be able to digest the entire fish.”
Pardon me if I skip that part of the marine performance.
