Goliath Grouper Fish Swallows 5 Foot Shark In A Single Bite

A group fishing off the coast of Bonita Springs in Florida snagged a 5-foot (1.5-meter) shark — hook, line, and sinker. But before they could haul it up, a spiky, golden leviathan surfaces and snatches the shark. The scene is a bit splashy, but yes, the shark appears to be swallowed in one bite! This goliath grouper — actually called goliath grouper (genus Epinephelus) — is described as 4 feet (just over a meter) long.

WATCH THE VIDEO:

Apparently, this monster grouper had tried to steal at least one other catch earlier that morning. Gimbb14 writes on reddit: “Had a 15lb goliath grouper take and brought him up, as I brought him to the boat, the monster goliath shown in the video came and tried to steal him. About 30 minutes later I had about a 5foot nurse shark take and brought him up. As I was dehooking the shark, the goliath came back and inspected but didn’t attack him.” About an hour later, the blacktip shark in the video was hooked.
