Ambitious Great White Shark tries to eat entire Humpback Whale, finds it very difficult

Eyes (and meal) bigger than her belly

Listen, we’ve all been there…

You order something and it looks delicious but the portion control is completely out of whack and you end up with the top button of your jeans undone just so you can get some more air into your system because it literally feels like you’re drowning in food.

That’s what pretty much happens with this Great White Shark here, who was recorded feasting on the corpse of a Humpback Whale for over EIGHTEEN HOURS STRAIGHT.

According to A.V. Club, the pregnant female shark was caught off the coast of Dana Point, California.

The conservationist who captured the scene reported: “Big female white shark tearing chunks off Scarlett the Whale over 18 hours. She ate so much she was swimming around upside-down aimlessly like she was intoxicated.”

That must be the shark equivalent of undoing your jeans button.
