The Whale that Ate Jaws

Off the coast of San Francisco, an unexpected killing challenged the great white shark’s supremacy as the ultimate predator when one became prey to a killer whale. Whale-watchers witnessed a stunning act of nature as a killer whale rose to the water’s surface with a great white in its mouth and held it there for 15 minutes. Even more amazing, biologist Peter Pyle was nearby and able to get underwater footage of two whales feeding on the shark.

Watch this episode of Nature Untamed tomorrow night (Monday, March 21) on National Geographic at 9pm.

Looks like it was just off the Farallones.   Heading out that way a couple of times this month, I’ll keep my eyes open.

    Only just read your post (22/03/2011) It would have been great to have watched that.

    Hope a repeat is put forward at some time.
