Cannibalised by a great bite shark

Jawsome: Shark was eaten by another great white PICTURE: SWNS

A GREAT white shark corpse is pulled from the water after being ‘cannibalised’ by another beast.

The 12ft long monster — with two huge bites out of its middle — was attacked by an even bigger great white on Australia’s Gold Coast.

Experts believe it had been caught on a baited hook or trapped in a net used to keep sharks away from swimmers. It then sent out distress signals, which were picked up by another great white that ‘fancied an easy meal’. The attacks are becoming more frequent.

Prof Mark Meekan, of the Australian Institute for Marine Science, said: ‘It’s not just one rogue shark attacking other sharks — it’s lots of different sharks turning on each other. Look at the size of that bite… it’s massive.’

Cannibal Sharks is on National Geographic Wild on Monday at 8pm as park of its Sharkfest.
