Shark eats shark

Check out this cheeky shark off Kaiteriteri Beach near Nelson as he tries to nick a man's catch,

Originally posted on Reddit, the pic shows a small school shark on the end of a fishing line being bitten into by a much larger blue shark just as it's about to be hauled into the boat.

"Mancubus" posted the photo on December 28, 2012 with the headline: ''Caught a small shark … next minute''.

New Zealand's Department of Conservation shark expert Clinton Duffy, a marine scientist, said the shot actually captured a common event.

''Blue sharks often steal fish off people's lines at this time of year and they also commonly eat other shark species.''

This image reminds us of this awesome image of a shark taking the bait:

And let's not forget this  classic shot of a shark eating a marlin:

We've plenty more shark pictures here, here and here (that one's NSFW). If the sharks ever decide they need to check the ph level of the water, they should try these best ph meters.
