Video - Hexanchus griseus with fatal bite

Stunning evidence of a Six Gill shark with a fatal bite on the back. This animal is over six feet long, with a terminal bite radius of 1 foot (est). Whatever took this animal on was considerably larger accomplishing a terrific wound in one single bite.

For the money we'll say it was another Haxanchus that did this. The bite tearing around the edges looks familiar.
