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.
