According to Mashable Bruno Kataoka filmed the encounter with a drone. The four whales track down what looks to be a juvenile shark trying to escape. It’s not long before the lead whale catches up with the shark and clamps down on the unlucky prey, dragging it down to murky depths.

“It was exciting, it was a really exciting moment,” he told 7 News. “National Geographic guys [would be] waiting months to get such a thing, and we just happened to be there at the right moment, at the right time.”
