SANTA BARBARA (USA)- Two brothers and diving buddies Peter and Trevor Fulks were returning from a dive trip to the Channel Islands with the Ocean Defenders Alliance when they spotted the carcass of a dead minke whalein the Santa Barbara Channel at 3 p.m., about seven miles from shore. A great snack for great whites. Luckily for us the two brothers captured it on video.
The video below shows only one great white shark eating the whale, but other observers said they counted three great whites and about a dozen blue sharks chomping on the carcass as well. The video above may be too graphic for some viewers. The whale has probably been dead for a few days, and in one of the opening shots, and subsequent shots, you can see its intestines floating on top of the water.
