WATCH: Tiger Shark Attacks Hammerhead In Epic Battle

This epic showdown took place in the Gulf of Mexico, and was recorded by a lucky student out on a fishing trip. After hooking a hammerhead shark, the fisherman watched as a tiger shark swims in and takes a chunk out of their catch.

Speaking to National Geographic, Ryan Willsea, who made the video, said, “the tiger shark grabbed the hammerhead around its head, broke the line, and then dragged him straight down.

“It was an incredible thing to see and catch on film.”
