A gruesome sight was the scene for this feast, but it’s who attended that will shock you.
The video was captured by Jeremy Tucker, the skipper of The Great Escape luxury charter boat. At the time the video was taken, the cruise ship was sailing near the Montgomery Reef, off the northwest coast of Australia.
According to ABC Kimberley, Tucker “could not believe his eyes,” but his nose reassured him what he was seeing was real.
As the boat neared closer to what turned out to be a dead male humpback whale, it became apparent this was not just an everyday feeding frenzy.
“There was a crocodile eating the side of the carcass as well as the tiger sharks, and a few other sharks,” Tucker said.
