Just days after two shark attacks were reported along the coast of New South Wales, an Australian diver named Brett Vercoe has captured video footage of three great whites and a couple of tiger sharks happily chomping at the carcass of a sperm whale. The video, capturing a scene Vercoe described as “impressive” and “incredible,” is currently making the rounds on social media.
It also comes in the wake of a string of shark attacks along the North Carolina coast, and together with them offers some incidental publicity for Discovery Channel’s Shark Week, which kicked off its 27th year on Sunday evening.
Excited for a seven-day block of educational cable programming dedicated to a fish? Of course you are.
