Watch this grouper inhale a four-foot shark foot in one bite.
Seriously, have you ever seen something eat a shark? We always see videos of shark attacks and everyone has seen the movie, Jaws.
But this blew my mind.
If you’re an avid fisherman, you know that grouper have to swallow their prey because their mouth edges aren’t loaded with teeth.
This video shows the unbelievable inhaling power of a grouper as it swallows a shark.
Watch the video below to see how this small shark is swallowed in one bite.
Yes, we know the footage is a bit shaky…but wouldn’t you be a little shaky and in shock if you watched this happen?
This rare sight was luckily caught on camera and you can see the grouper make one swift motion to attack the shark while it was still hooked by the fisherman.
The grouper’s mouth and gills create an intense sucking power to bring prey in to eat, even from a distance. Did you know grouper use their mouth to swallow sand in order to form their shelters under big rocks, and then jet it out through their gills?
Something else that is crazy about grouper is that their gill muscles are so powerful that it is nearly impossible to pull them out of their cave if they ever feel attacked. They extend the gills and it locks themselves in.
If you’re out in the ocean fishing, you should always have your camera handy because you never know when a grouper might pop out of no where and steal your catch!
