New underwater footage posted online Friday is believed to be the world’s first video showing a pod of killer whales hunting and killing a tiger shark.
According to Barcroft TV, the video was captured off the coast of Costa Rica by photographer Caroline Power on September 8th.
The wildlife video shows three killer whales work in unison to force the shark toward the surface, before they bite off its fins. Ultimately, one of the killer whales delivers a final blow to the shark.
The footage amassed nearly 50,000 views on YouTube Friday.
