Shark Eaten Whole By Grouper Fish (Video)

| by Emily Smith

A new video uploaded to YouTube shows a shark being eaten by an Atlantic goliath grouper.

The footage was uploaded on Tuesday and shows two people on a fishing boat who were fishing off the coast of Bonita Springs. Suddenly, a shark bites their bait and the two men try to reel it in. However, a much larger fish, a 4-foot grouper, arrives and swallows the shark in one gobble.

You have to see this to believe it. This dog unlocked his crate and four doors in the middle of the night to escape his veterinarian's office:

The Goliath grouper is commonly and insensitively called a “jewfish” because it jumps out of the water and helps itself to a meal in one bite. The fish’s mouth and gills create a powerful sucking system that allows it to swallow prey in a single gulp instead of chewing it.

The grouper is a protected species in the U.S. and must be returned to the water if caught.
