Sharks Tearing Apart a Whale - Video

Pretty cool video coming out of Stanwell Park, NSW and Warroora Station this month as almost 100 sharks devour the remains of a whale in the surf line.

Yes sharks actually eat things folks, and yes sharks do have teeth. We only mention this obvious fact to counter the incessant and somewhat myopic conservation nonsense being spewed forth by a host of "24 hour shark experts" these days in an ongoing campaign to re-brand the shark as anything but what they actually are - perfect predators.

Here's a thought, you can still love a predator.

Err, I think you'll find they're playing, not biting! For your information, Sharks don't have teeth and they're friends with whales, people like you make me sick trying to tell people sharks eat stuff.

Fins down Shark Diver, fins all the way down :outrage:

What type of shark ?

Clearly, they are just trying to help the beached whale back out to open ocean.

Hey Office,

Why the anger? Hate kills man:)

Drink some chai, relax man, those sharks are just as cuddly as you want them to be:)

You said it George, but that whale looks a little punchy to me.

Perfect predators? From this video it would appear that this gaggle of sharks are more like scavengers. Just pointing out the obvious.
