Scientists have been amused by sharks for decades and with the new generation technology, they have decided to study the creatures by tagging them with the goal to try and understand their behaviour.
One of the researchers sharks who they have tagged is a healthy nine-foot great white. Researchers used the tag to track its movements, but the team were left stunned after the great white subject completely disappeared and washed up on a beach in Australia four months later.
The last data that was captured before the disappearance of the 9-footer, which is also known as the “black box” showed a major spike in temperature, which started at 7.6 degrees and spiked to 25.5 degrees. The data also showed that the shark endured a sudden sharp 1,902-foot plunge.
The data made researchers believe that the ‘black box’ was eaten by something much bigger. Researchers came to the conclusion that the spike in the temperature indicates that the shark was devoured and was possibly inside another animal’s digestive system.
Filmmaker Dave Riggs stated in 2014 that when he was first told about the data that came back from the tag, he was stunned. “The question that not only came to my mind but everyone’s mind who was involved was ‘what did that?’ It was obviously eaten. What’s going to eat a shark that big? What could kill a [nine-foot] great white?”
According to the researchers who investigated the case, it seemed to have been a “colossal cannibal great white shark.”
The scientists claimed that their research data matched all of the tracking information from the lost shark.
With their research, it was found that the size of the cannibal great white shark is believed to be 16 foot in length and weighs over two tonnes.
They further came to the conclusion that the attack between the 16-footer and the 9-footer was of a territorial dispute, or could have been of a hunger-induced nature.
With the data discovered and the conclusion made, researchers are now concerned that the magnificent species may be on the road of extinction.
Bryan Franks, a Jacksonville University doctoral professor stated in 2019 that he could say with certainty that they would lose stability, but there are so many factors involved it’s difficult to predict.
“Their prey would go up, then that third-level species would be depleted, but it’s difficult to model. The classic example is the otters, the urchins and the kelp."
