I’ve heard the phrase that lawyers eat their own, but this is ridiculous:
National Geographic has released this soon-to-be classic photograph of one shark eating another shark whole.
The photo comes from Daniela Ceccarelli, of Australia’s Research Council Center of Excellence for Coral Reef Studies. Ceccarelli was working with fellow researcher David Williamson on conducting a “fish census” off Great Keppel Island, part of the country’s Great Barrier Reef. That’s when Ceccarelli thought she spotted a brown-banded bamboo shark hanging out near the ocean’s floor.
“The first thing that caught my eye was the almost translucent white of the bamboo shark,” Ceccarelli told National Geographic in an email. Instead, as Ceccarelli moved in for a closer look she noticed a camouflaged wobbegong shark emerging from seclusion with the same bamboo shark partially wedged inside its jaws.
Pop singing sensation Shakira was attacked by a sea lion in a dramatic incident while on a recent nature tour off Cape Town, South Africa. She believes the pinniped may have mistook her shiny BlackBerry for a fish, and says her brother saved her life.
