This Drone Captured Something You Would Only Expect To See In A Horror Movie

Sharks might seem cute and cuddly to some, especially after their treatment in various Pixar movies.

However, they are still deadly, focused, killing machines. As evidence for this I present the following drone video featuring a group of tiger sharks in Australia absolutely tearing into the carcass of a dead whale.

The circle of life, my friends:

That is both awesome and brutal…just when you thought nature couldn’t get any more violent.

Watching This Video Of A Sea Lion Eating A Shark Will Leave Your Jaw On The Ground

We all think of sharks as the top predators of the sea. They are lean, mean, chomping machines. They’ve had several movies written and produced about them, several documentaries, heck, Discovery Channel has a whole week dedicated to them every year.

But when you see this gang of sea lions take down some sharks, you will start to second-guess their position at the top of the sea’s food chain. This video was taken aboard The Western Pride out of Davey’s Locker Sportfishing and Whale Watching in Newport Beach, CA.

Move over, sharks, sea lions are top dog now.

Just look at how ruthless this sea lion is as it attacks these sharks.

Not even an approaching bird can rip the shark away from the sea lion’s jaws.

Best for last: the fin.

Note to self: don’t mess with sea lions.

These incredible moments were captured by photographer Slater Moore — I imagine he felt pretty amazed by the occurrence. If you’d like to see more of his work, don’t forget to check out his Instagram.

Megamouth Shark Washes Up On A Philippine Beach And It’s Kind Of Cute

If it’s named after a DreamWorks character, it has to adorable, right?

1. As you may or may not have heard, a rare megamouth shark washed up ashore in the Philippines.

Google

People have been like, “OMG SO SCARY” and “JULES VERNE FEVER DREAM TBH,” but it’s kind of adorable actually?

2. Ready? This is what it looks like.

The dead megamouth shark was found in Pio Duran, Albay. It was nicknamed “Toothless,” after its resemblance to the character in the How to Train Your Dragon movies.

3. See? Cute!

Megamouths feed primarily on plankton in the deep sea, using its bioluminescent mouth (read: glowing jaws) to attract its prey. There have been 15 sightings of megamouths in the Philippines — second only to Japan — and Toothless is reportedly the 66th time a megamouth has been found.

5. (Just a reminder that the megamouth shark rubs fins with creatures like this, so it could be worse.)

 

6. Even scientists have difficulty believing that it’s a real creature. The species has been sighted so rarely that some still classify it as a cryptid.

The megamouth Toothless was brought over to the Philippines’ Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR) to be examined and preserved.

7. R.I.P. Toothless.
