A photographer captured video footage of a tiger shark devouring a hammerhead shark.
Professional photographer and surfer Jack Bates captured a rare spectacle off the coast of Juno Beach in Florida. He filmed a tiger shark feeding on the remains of a hammerhead shark.
He told TC Plam: ‘It was quite incredible. I'm glad I had my camera. However, we don't know if the tiger shark killed the hammerhead shark, or if it was just feeding on the remains that were there.’
