Mystery Solved: 9-Foot Great White Eaten by a Bigger Great White

It’s a shark eat shark world.

Producers and scientists involved in the documentary The Search for the Ocean’s Super Predator (which has been repackaged by the Smithsonian Channel and titled: Hunt for the Super Predator) have solved the 11-year-old mystery of what killed an ate a 9 foot great white shark off an Australian beach more than a decade ago.

Another great white shark.
