70 Sharks Feast On Whale In Oz

Warning: This video contains images of sharks feeding on a dead whale

What happens when you spot 70 tiger sharks circling around a massive humpback whale carcass? Well, if the answer wasn't obvious enough, the outcome was captured for all those not in attendance via drone footage.

Recorded in Shark Bay outside of Perth, Australia, by the tour company, Eco Abrolhos, the GoPro video shows just how crazy nature can be sometimes.

The aerial footage gives an eye-opening shot of the whopping number of sharks that showed up for the feeding frenzy. A pool of red blood surfaces, which is later followed by a close-up of the animals as they aggressively fight over their dinner.

It's unclear whether the whale was already dead when the predators found it or if they were the ones that did the job, however it is apparent that they're content with the find.

DONSOL, PHILIPPINES: A whale shark, nearly six meters (20 feet) long, swims with its huge mouth open near the surface of the plankton-rich water of Donsol town, 24 May 2007. The whale sharks (scientific name: Rhinchodon typus) have been slaughtered in some other parts of the country before, but environmentalist came to the rescue of the endangered giant fish and developed an eco tourism program for Donsol, turning what was once a backward fishing town in the eastern Philippines into a prime tourist spot offering visitors a swim with the whale sharks and transforming local fishermen into whale spotters, dive guides and whale protectors.

NUMAZU, JAPAN - JANUARY 21: In this handout picture released by Awashima Marine Park, a 1.6 meter long Frill shark swims in a tank after being found by a fisherman at a bay in Numazu, on January 21, 2007 in Numazu, Japan. The frill shark, also known as a Frilled shark usually lives in waters of a depth of 600 meters and so it is very rare that this shark is found alive at sea-level. It's body shape and the number of gill are similar to fossils of sharks which lived 350,000,000 years ago. (Photo by Awashima Marine Park/Getty Images)
