This drone footage of 70 sharks eating a whale carcass is the most metal thing you'll see today

Posted By on Mon, May 23, 2016 at 1:01 PM



Around 70 tiger sharks were caught on video consuming the carcass of a humpback whale in Sharks Bay last week. 



Tour Company Eco Abrolhos encountered the feeding frenzy while taking passengers on a cruise in Dirk Hartog Island. The company captured footage of the feeding using a drone and a GoPro camera, and estimated there to be around 70 sharks. 

The whale was already deceased by the time the sharks arrived, Eco Abrolhos wrote on Facebook.

Sharks Bay, located on the west edge of Australia, is a World Heritage Site possessing sharks and several endangered species.
