Illustration for article titled Female Shark in Seoul Aquarium Eats Male Shark Because He Kept Bumping Into Her

Via Newsweek, here’s the story of an animal who leaned the fuck in:

It took the 8-year-old female 21 hours to eat the 5-year-old male inside a tank at the COEX Aquarium. According to video of the consumption, the female shark started with the male’s head and slowly went about consuming the rest of his body.

This act of shark cannibalism likely was the result of the sharks bumping into one another. “Sharks have their own territories,” an aquarium official told Reuters. “Sometimes, when they bump into each other, they bite out of astonishment.”

Despite her best efforts to make a meal of the male shark, the female shark is expected to at some point regurgitate the remains of her former roommate.


Well, you win some, you lose some, you eat some, you throw some up. Just another day in the life of a strong, empowered woman.

There’s a Daily Mirror video here, and another at Reuters.
