Killer Whales Eating a Shark!!

Pictures captured by a drone have caught the moment that orcas eat a shark. It is rare to find this species of whales and rarer still see them eating. Whales - two female adults and two young - are seen swimming with the shark in their mouths. 

The video was recorded this Tuesday by photographer Slater Moore while he was with the whale watching group in Monterey Bay, California, United States. Moore saw the whales and realized they were eating so he set the drone down to get a better look.

"Suddenly, one of them brought the entire shark to the surface. He was still alive and very agitated," said Katlyn Taylor, a marine biologist who was with the group, according to The Verge. 

Taylor believes the shark was a witch-hunt, an abundant species in Monterey Bay, and about one-and-a-half feet long. 

The video was posted on Facebook and has been viewed more than 370 thousand times.
