The #1 Paranormal News Site
Florida natives hoping for a relaxing weekend at the beach were left shocked and appalled when they discovered the washed up body of a shark that had washed up on the coast. After examining the corpse of the giant fish, they found that it had been half eaten and discarded by another animal.
Half eaten shark discovered on Florida beach
Wildlife officials were called the site off the coast of the city of New Smyrna Beach where they investigated the animal where it had been discovered. The experts estimated that the shark would have been approximately five feet in length before the encounter with the unknown creature that had killed it. They suggested that the animal which killed the shark would have had to be significantly larger than the formidable shark that washed up on the beach.
Some local residents have suggested that the shark might have been the victim of a huge great white shark which has been named ‘Katharine’ which is known to lurk on the shores of Cape Cod. However, this may not be the case. Great white sharks have known to prey on other sharks, but cannibalism between these animals tends to occur in utero rather than when the shark is fully grown. It is believed that great white sharks eat each other in the womb to ensure they are given full attention from their mothers once they are born. Cannibalism among sharks after this period is not as well documented.
Killer whales, otherwise known as orcas, have been known to hunt and eat sharks but they are not particularly prevalent in this particular region of the Pacific Ocean. A form of whale that is more common to this area is the formidable sperm whale. These whales are known to be highly aggressive and dangerous killers who were made famous by the nineteenth-century novel ‘Moby Dick’.
Whether the experts are able to get to the bottom of this grisly mystery or not, one thing is certain – the world’s oceans are truly teeming with the most terrifying creatures in this world.
