Shark vs shark: giant great white attacks another great white
A vicious great white shark bursts from the water to rip into another SHARK. The sensational moment was caught on camera by Adam Malski, 33, as the fish proved why it has the reputation of the ocean’s most fearsome predator. The 4.8m shark – named ‘Gilbert’ – snatched the rival fish 50 miles from Australia’s shore. The fearsome predator survived the encounter but the smaller shark has not been sighted since.

Orcas vs shark: killer whales take down tiger shark
A POD of killer whales have been filmed for the first time hunting and killing a TIGER SHARK. The footage, which is believed to be a world-first, was captured off the coast of Costa Rica by underwater photographer Caroline Power and British marine biologist Nicholas Bach. It shows three killer whales working as a team to force the panicked shark to the surface, wearing it down and taking opportunistic bites at its fins. Eventually, a large bull moves in to deliver the death blow while flipping the shark onto its back in the process - which induces a state of paralysis known as tonic immobility. The pod then takes turns at eating and stripping the seven-foot shark down to its bare bones before disappearing back into the ocean. The attack took place at Chatham Bay on Cocos Island, Costa Rica, on September 8.

Maths teacher Sebastien Bascoules captured a massive 17ft anaconda which ate his friend’s dog in French Guiana. The 39-year-old old wrestled the huge serpent out of a river close to his friend’s house, blindfolded it and left it in his bathtub over night. With the help of his friends and young sons Sebastien then released the 175lb anaconda into a large river six miles away.
