Shark Eats Whale: See Incredible Video Of Great Whites Tearing Carcass Apart [VIDEO]
California boaters discovered a decomposing carcass of a minke whale floating along the outer Santa Barbara Channel -- but they were already late to the party. The boaters captured a video of three great whites and at least a dozen blue sharks feasting on the whale.
The boat that witnessed the incident was an Island Packers high-speed catamaran that chartered passengers to and from the islands of Channel Islands National Park and Channel Islands National Marine Sanctuary. Boater Anrea Mills, who works for Island Packers, recorded the event. Waters were calm and exceptionally clear when the feasting frenzy was recorded. The boaters watched in awe as they saw the sharks tear and maritime birds pick away at the large whale, which will likely sustain the appetite of many animals for days.
