In the coastal waters of South Africa’s four-meter white shark, also known as the man-eater, in 50 minutes dealt with a ten foot whale. This publication reports The Times.
Marine biologist Ryan Johnson (Ryan Johnson) captured using a drone, like a great white shark killed the whale. According to him, a predatory fish grabbed the tail of the enemy, hitting a vital artery, then dragged him under the water. Presumably, the battle involved a shark named Helen, who was caught in 2013 in the framework of the research.
“a Shark, no doubt, adhered to the strategy; she knew exactly what to do, Johnson said. The first shot was a strike at the whale tail. (…) She managed to bite him in Vienna, so I immediately started to bleed”. After the first attack, the shark waited for half an hour while Keith will faint from blood loss. Then the predator again went on the attack. This time he swam to the mammal with head and plunged him under water to drown.
In the end, the shark is defeated by the whale, which is several times her size. “It seemed that Helen was well informed how to behave. This gave me the idea that she is a trained killer whales, which was guided by the instincts or knew that its prey is weak,” said the biologist.
the Great white shark (great white) is one of the largest predatory fish in the world. The average members of this species grow to 4.6-4.8 meters in length. Considered the most hazardous to human species.
In March, it became known that biologists have documented the first case of attacks man-eating sharks to humpback whale. The incident occurred in 2017 off the coast of Africa near the South African town of Mossel Bay. The seven-meter humpback whale entangled in fishing gear have noticed from the research vessel.
