Killer Whales Hunt Down And Attack Tiger Shark In Costa Rica

A marine biologist captured astonishing footage of a pod of killer whales off Costa Rica as they systematically hunted, killed, and feasted on an unlucky tiger shark.

Filmmaker Edwar Herreño filmed the showdown off the coast of Cocos Island National Park, 300km west of Costa Rica. In the video, a pod of six killer whales corners the tiger shark, which appears visibly agitated. The shark’s fin breaks the surface of the water as the whales surround it, preventing its escape.
