A tagged 9 foot shark quickly went down 1,900 feet and eaten in one bite.

Scientists have never seen this before.

What sea monster lurks in our sea ?

I am surprised that this shark getting eaten has been talked about on TV.

One commentator on TV claims this mystery monster had to be 2 tons in weight and 16 feet long.

I know Sperm Whales can dive deep, so do Sperm Whales eat sharks ?

I do not think so.

Lol silver maybe ET fancied a fish supper, nine foot is not that big as some sharks can get up to sixty feet.

It is claimed that we know more about the Moon than our oceans.

Ivan Sanderson always believed that E.T.'s lived in our oceans.

The earth is 2/3 water.

That’s a strong possibility Silver if they can handle space then a few pounds of pressure wont bother them unlike us so it’s a safe environment for them

The tag was found on a beach. The record shows what happened to the TAG, not necessarily the shark.
It could have been bitten off and eaten or simply torn off and eaten by a large squid.
But to say the whole shark was eaten is conjecture at best.

Thats what I thought too..until they said that part..I thought of a giant orca..or killer whale. they call a apex prdaotor when their normal supply runs low they attack even blue whales..but do so in packs..very organized.


Data captured on the device showed there was a rapid temperature rise from 46 degrees to 78 degrees Fahrenheit along with a sudden, sharp 1,902-foot plunge.

The researchers believe the data proves it was eaten by something much bigger, saying the temperatures recorded indicate that the shark went inside another animal’s digestive system.

from whalefacts.org

Do Whales Eat Sharks?
That’s a great question!

The only Cetacea known to successfully hunt, attack and/or eat sharks is the killer whale (possibly the false killer whale as well, although not much is known or well researched about this species).

Killer whales are very intelligent, highly organized and very social and can often be found hunting in groups together when searching for large prey.

These marine mammals have been known to attack and eat everything from small fish and turtles to squid, seals, sea lions and even large whales.

Killer whales also hunt, attack and eat sharks.

Some of the sharks that have been recorded being hunted by killer whales include hammerheads, makos, great whites, threshers and whale sharks.

As far as whales go when other food sources are limited killer whales will attack even the largest of the whale species.

Although not much information has been recorded regarding killer whales actually eating a healthy living blue whale (the largest animal in existence) they have been observed hunting and attacking them as well as other smaller whales.

Some blue whales can be found with marks and scars from battles with killer whales.

Killer whales have also been observed attacking, killing and eating sharks and will use a technique known as a “karate chop” in which they drive the shark to the surface of the water and then lift their tail and slam it down on the shark similar to a martial artist doing a karate chop.

The killer whale then grabs the shark and flips it over to incapacitate it by causing tonic immobility.

When a shark is flipped over onto its stomach quickly the shark panics and becomes immobile allowing the killer whale to successfully attack it.

Other techniques used to attack sharks include multiple killer whales circling a shark and ramming it, and stealthy sneaking up from bellow and attacking the sharks underbelly.

Killer whales are very intelligent and cautious when it comes to hunting dangerous prey and will either attack in groups or use stealth to minimize its chances of being harmed.

Killer whales don’t always make sharks or whales a part of their primary diet, but when food becomes scarce and/or limited these marine mammals will hunt other marine mammals regardless of their prey’s size.

Note: In some areas killer whales primarily eat fish while in others marine mammals make up a large part of their diet.

Killer whales are commonly known as apex predators.

An apex predator is a predator who has no known predators of its own.

They are able to attack other marine mammals without the fear of being attacked themselves which puts them at the top of the food chain in the oceanic world.

Squids are interesting too

The Orca reaches a maximum length of about 25 feet and eats about 500 pounds of food per day.
While one could kill the shark they could not eat it whole. As most sharks are tagged by either bolting the tag to the dorsal fin while the shark is emobilized, or by sticking a streamer like dart into the sharks back, the odds of the tag alone being torn or bitten away sound better.

I agree cannot rule out other scenarios....if they attacked in a group..and did that flip and maneuver one big guy could come underneath whilst stunned and bite the fin..I hear fin soup tasty.. off with tag..then dive deep with it..much like a sharks feeding frenzy..gulp dive down then return up to feed. as they were pretty hungry to start with...I am surprised more data stream was not provided..but it makes for sensationalism.their is .a giant colossus squid rumored to exist..could bring a shark down to deep depths.....unable to move..the shark would drown..but it would not swallow whole..they have beak to tear prey..

I think we can rule out Orcas Skiz leaving a Giant Squid and one other..but probably most likey..because of the depth reported.

Seaworld.org/animal-info/animal-infobooks/killer-whale/adaptations/
Killer whales can swim at speeds of up to 45 kph (28 mph), but probably only for .... whale's core body temperature is about 36.4º to 38ºC (97.5º–100.4ºF


Dive depth.
Although not generally deep divers, foraging killer whales can dive to at least 100 m (328 ft.) or more.
The deepest dive known for a killer whale, performed under experimental conditions, was 259 m (850 ft.)


The spermwhale eats both including mega sharks

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sperm_whaleSperm whales are the largest toothed whales on the planet, and perhaps the most abundant of the great whales, but we rarely get to study them because they spend so much time underwater. Sperm whales are deep divers, holding their breath and diving thousands of feet down to feed on deep sea squid and fish. They spend 90% of their lives down deep where they can't be seen. Only rarely do these energetic animals take a break and rest at the surface.

When people talk about big predators they always forget the whales.

There are no known existing sharks that get anything like that big. The largest Great White ever tagged was 5 meters long:

https://ca.news.yahoo.com/blogs/geekquinox/massive-great-white-shark-largest-ever-tagged-off-155231625.html

Basking sharks are bigger though, the largest recorded was 12 meters in 1851.

http://www.wildlifewatch.org.uk/Beast-of-the-Month-BASKING-SHARK

Even the extinct megaladon, based on fossils found, was "only" a maximum of 46 - 59ft long.
