Researchers and divers capture tiger sharks preying on a dead whale

Have you ever seen something like this? Sharks preying on a dead whale.

According to the pictures released by Maldives Whale Shark Research Programme (MWSRP) and divers in the area, a dead whale washed through South Ari Atoll and tiger sharks took full advantage of the of the free meal.

MWSRP was unable to measure the dead whale as their 20m tape was not long enough. They estimated it to be minimum 25m or longer and they were unable to identify the cause of death. What proves in nothing goes waste in the ocean.
