According to Australian scientists, a tagged 3-meter-long (9 foot) great white shark was killed and eaten by an even bigger predator, most likely a “colossal cannibal great white shark” Gizmodo reports.

Full story here.

Interesting find! Who knows how many species we've written off as extinct actually still exist.

Killer whales can and do inflict deadly damage upon great white sharks but then again knowing how we know more about the moon than we do about the aquatic abyss all around us anythings possible and most likely all sorts of prehistoric beasts are alive and well within the immense and vast oceans of earth...

Think about how the coelacanth was thought and taught to have gone extinct 65,000,000 years ago and modern day reported sightings of this prehistoric giant fish were brushed aside and ridiculed until the eventual discovery of two different living species proved the validity of their survival and existence and so that proves how just about anything could still be alive and swimming around within our vast rivers and lakes and oceans and inland seas...

It isn't so surprising. At least two Orca pods are known to have become great white hunters. They learned to attack from beneath rolling the sharks onto their backs where they hold them until they die.

Then they nom.

And a 9 ft great white really isn't very big for the species. I can't imagine what possessed them to name it Alpha.

I use to think that sharks were the supreme and dominant predators of the ocean but they are not because killer whales are awesome and fearless and savage the real kings and queens of the ocean (*-*)

Quote: Killer whales are regarded as apex predators, lacking natural predators.

The killer whale's large size and strength make it among the fastest marine mammals, able to reach speeds in excess of 30 knots (56 km/h).

Killer whales as a species have a diverse diet, although individual populations often specialize in particular types of prey. Some feed exclusively on fish, while others hunt marine mammals like pinnipeds and even large whales.

Killer whales are the largest extant members of the dolphin family. Males typically range from 6 to 8 metres (20 to 26 ft) long and weigh in excess of 6 tonnes (5.9 long tons; 6.6 short tons). Females are smaller, generally ranging from 5 to 7 m (16 to 23 ft) and weighing about 3 to 4 tonnes (3.0 to 3.9 long tons; 3.3 to 4.4 short tons).

The largest male killer whale on record was 9.8 m (32 ft), weighing over 10 tonnes (9.8 long tons; 11 short tons), while the largest female was 8.5 m (28 ft), weighing 7.5 tonnes (7.4 long tons; 8.3 short tons).

Quote: Sharks are generally opportunistic predators. However, scientists propose that C. megalodon was "arguably the most formidable carnivore ever to have existed." Its great size, high speed swimming capability, and powerful jaws coupled with formidable killing apparatus, made it a super predator with the capability to consume a broad spectrum of fauna.
