Despite being half-eaten, the terrifying ‘zombie shark’ continues to prowl for food.
Dr. Mario Lebrato took the incredible clip off the coast of Spain, where the shark fought for nearly 20 minutes before dying to its injuries.
Despite being half-eaten, a ‘zombie shark’ has been sighted continuously looking for victims.
Dr. Mario Lebrato, 35, was startled as he captured the exceedingly uncommon footage roughly two meters below the water’s surface while releasing an oceanic black tip shark into the sea off the coast of Spain.
However, as he and his crew released the shark, it was attacked by a group of other sharks, inflicting fatal injuries on the unwitting black tip, according to The Sun.
Several bull sharks, which can weigh up to 400 kilograms, were among them, according to the scientist.
Despite the onslaught and the fact that a big chunk of its body had been bitten off, the shark fought for its life and attempted to swim away.
The shark fought for around 20 minutes before dying to its injuries, according to Dr. Lebtrato.
“Sharks devour sharks, that is well known,” he continued, “but filming and documenting it is extremely tough.”
A great white shark was caught on film earlier this year swooping through the air to attack its prey.
The marine predator is skulking beneath the surface of the water, completely camouflaged, when it spots a bunch of seals in the video, which was shot for National Geographic’s Big Sharks Rule.

The seals struggle to stay together, but eventually separate, and the shark takes advantage of the opportunity to attack.
The apex predator rushes up from below with its jaws wide open, showing hundreds of razor-sharp teeth in a terrifying display of speed.
It slams the seal into the ground and crunches down with its tremendous teeth.
The shark then leaps into the air with the seal in its teeth, flipping horizontally in mid-flight before crashing back into the ocean with a big splash.
