Enormous 2000kg Great White shark chokes to death on sea turtle

A. Leaf (strangeradiocentral.com), 05/28/2019

A Great White shark has choked to death on a sea turtle, a fisherman dramatically revealed on Facebook.  

In a world where sharks - and especially Great Whites - are unduly feared because of the influence of Hollywood movies like Jaws, the pictures reinforce the narrative that this is one apex predator not to be messed with (even if it was taken out by a turtle). In them, the shark's bloody mouth and razor-sharp teeth are clearly visible.

It's certainly not a sight for anyone who thinks twice before putting a toe in the ocean, despite the fact that it's a fairly well-known fact that shark attacks, especially fatal ones, are rare.

The fisherman who made the grim discovery, Greg Vella, shared it on the Facebook group Commercial Salmon, Albacore & Crab Fishers alongside the following caption:

"I was out commercial 'ken ken' style fishing for tuna (Japan, Pacific Ocean side) when I heard chatter on the radio that there was a white shark swimming around with a big sea turtle in [its] mouth. People started to joke about it, so I did not pay it any more attention," he wrote.

"The next day, it was found dead, near the bait receivers, tangled in some netting. The captains I interviewed who saw the mighty shark the day before, said it looked close to death, as it could not dislodge the giant turtle. The commercial guys were bummed, as white sharks do not bother their commercial fishing, and most certainly do bother the things that eat our catch," Vella continued.

He then concluded the post by revealing that the shark weighed 4,500 pounds (2,000kg).

Understandably, the shocking images garnered a considerable amount of attention on the social media website. At the time of writing, the post has been shared 9.1K times and received over 7.1K reactions.

"Holy crap. National Geographic at its best," remarked one member of the group.

"Bit off more than he could chew," joked a second. Whereas a third simply pointed out the obvious and wrote: "The shark [won't] do that again..."
