What’s Big Enough to Eat a 9-Foot Great White Shark?

Everyone has been abuzz the past few days regarding this story, which purports that a tagged great white shark was apparently eaten by something even bigger in the ocean. It’s a terrifying prospect, to be sure, thinking that the ocean’s top predator was gulped down by something even bigger. So what could it be? The theories are already pouring in, and speculation is running rampant.

What was big enough to eat a great white shark?A huge 9-foot-long great white shark was eaten by an even bigger “mystery sea monster,” according to scientists.

Researchers had tagged the healthy shark to track its movements as part of a study, but were shocked when the tracking device washed up on a beach in Australia four months later.

Data captured on the device showed there was a rapid temperature rise from 46 degrees to 78 degrees Fahrenheit along with a sudden, sharp 1,902-foot plunge.

The researchers believe the data proves it was eaten by something much bigger, saying the temperatures recorded indicate that the shark went inside another animal’s digestive system.

The only theory they have so far is that that shark was gobbled up by a “colossal cannibal great white shark.”

The case is detailed in an upcoming documentary by the Smithsonian Institute, called the “Hunt for the Super Predator,” which draws from an earlier Australian documentary, “The Search for the Ocean’s Super Predator.”

“When I was first told about the data that came back from the tag that was on the shark, I was absolutely blown away,” filmmaker Dave Riggs says in the documentary.

“The question that not only came to my mind but everyone’s mind who was involved was, ‘What did that?’ It was obviously eaten. What’s gonna eat a shark that big? What could kill a [9-foot] great white?”

The ocean is one of the last (if not the last) frontier on Earth, and we really don’t know much about it. This was probably the case of a much larger great white eating this shark (9 feet sounds big, but great whites can get even bigger – sometimes over 20 feet long), or maybe even a killer whale. But who knows what lurks in the depths of our oceans? Hopefully it’s not something big enough to prey on great white sharks…

One thought on “What’s Big Enough to Eat a 9-Foot Great White Shark?

  1. The film that Roger Patterson and Bob Gimlin made in 1967 of Bigfoot was real. The test that Nasa did on the film stated that the careture had both human and gorilla characteristics. Bigfoot is a human-primate hybrid. Several thousand years ago there was a large group of men that took off and ended up in Africa. Some of them went exploring to Borneo and used ropes to catch female orangutans and took them to South America. They had sex with them and created the Indians. The men that stayed in Africa used ropes to catch female gorillas and had sex with them and created the Africans. That’s where Bigfoot and the Orangutan caretures come from. They are man made caretures from long ago.
