Incredible Clip Shows Shark Attack Another Shark

Incredible footage showing the rare moment a shark attacked another shark was captured by a man on diving trip.

Adam Malski was on a trip near Neptune Islands, south Australia, when he saw one of the sharks dive for a bit of bait hanging off the side of the boat, seconds later another shark pops and appears to try and take a bite of the shark.

Speaking to Barcroft Media, Malski said: "The day where the shark attacked the other was surreal.

"I asked the dive master and skipper of the boat what would happen if a smaller shark got in the way of a larger shark.

"The skipper responded, 'The big shark would take the smaller one down'.

"Literally six seconds later, that amazing scene was witnessed by me, the skipper and the dive master. They had never seen anything like it before."

The bigger of the two sharks, which measures 4.8m shark and is named 'Gilbert', is said to have survived the attack, but the smaller of the pair has not been spotted since. Not a good outlook for the poor dude.

Although sharks have been known to eat their own, the phenomena is rarely caught on camera.

Earlier this year, a man who lost his leg in a shark attack, filmed the moment he came face-to-face with a shark 20 years later.

Mike Coots was boogie boarding near Hawaii when a tiger shark grabbed him by his right-leg and managed to rip it clean off. However, if you're thinking this would be enough to put Mike off ever going in the sea again, then you're wrong, because he made the unusual decision to become a shark conservationist - and he now spends time diving with them predators across the world to raise awareness.

He even went ahead and filmed an encounter with a Great White while in New Zealand.

He said: "When I filmed the footage this Great White was coming right up to me - literally millimetres away.

"It was literally like hanging with dinosaurs. It's one of the coolest things you can do on earth. You can just feel the vibe from this apex predator.

"Stewart Island is one of the only spots in the world where you can consistently dive with big whites, but it's still quite rare to see them this close."

Mike, who now campaigns to save sharks, despite losing his leg to one a couple of decades ago, added: "It's been a really fun experience to use my unique situation to connect with other people who are passionate about the same thing as me.

"Sharks aren't just man-eaters, they are invaluable to the balance and health of our oceans."
