In a disturbing/awesome instance of shark-on-shark cannibalism, the Mall of America's Underwater Adventures was the scene of feral aggression Friday when a sand tiger shark named Jessie--which at nine feet long and over 300 pounds is the aquarium's largest shark--took a bite out of a white tip reef shark about half her size.
Desperate to avoid a feeding frenzy, workers rushed to save the bleeding victim and pulled her out with feeding tongs. The maimed shark is expected to make a full recovery and was reportedly delicious.
Hat tip: KARE 11.
