A super predator is eating the great white sharks

A-super-predator-is-eating-the-great-white-sharks

Google may have mapped most of the world’s land mass, but the oceans are still a big mystery to everyone including scientists. We know a lot about them, but we’ve probably only uncovered the tip of the iceberg as a recent discovery about ocean fish stocks proves.

But now we have a new mystery, and one that’s quite exciting because it may lead to the discovery of a new super predator in the oceans around Australia.

In order to better understand the movements of great white sharks along Australia’s coast line, cinematographer Dave Riggs was tasked with tagging a number of them.

These tags hold information about movement patterns, depth, and temperature. So even if they become dislodged from a shark, they still hold valuable information.

The video below details an incident where a tag from a 3-meter-long (9 feet) great white shark washed up on a beach.

The data it held about the shark’s last known movements are quite unbelievable, and suggest some kind of super predator we have yet to discover is feeding in the ocean near Australia.

Something Ate This Shark…But What?

There’s not much in the ocean that will mess with a great white, especially one that’s 3 meters long. So a sudden large depth change and huge temperature increase both suggest an attack. The temperature change happening because the tag has been ingested by something else.

The collective minds over on Reddit have been weighing up the evidence. An even larger great white shark or an orca whale have been put forward as possible attackers, but the depth and temperatures don’t tie up well enough. Another suggestion has been that it’s a giant squid.

For now it remains a mystery, but I hope it isn’t eventually explained as another shark or orca. I want a new super predator discovery, please.
