An intense aquarium turf war in South Korea escalates, culminating in one shark devouring another. The incident caught on video shows the large, female tiger shark eating the bounded hound shark. The video at one point shows the shark mostly hanging out of the tiger shark’s mouth. Then, a day later, the larger shark is seen swimming around on video with the just the smaller shark’s tail hanging from its mouth.
Aquarium officials said the larger shark is unable to digest the smaller shark.
The Coex Aquarium said this was the first incident since it began breeding large sharks 10 years ago. They believe the attack was the result of a turf war.
There are 40 other sharks, two turtles, and 20 sting rays that share the tank.
