A surfer filmed a fascinating and furious feeding frenzy on a beach in North West Australia - and it makes for grim viewing.
You certainly wouldn't want to be going for a casual paddle whilst this was going on - nature at its most ferocious.
The sharks tore apart the carcass of the beached whale right on the beach located near Warroora Station - and blogger Rachel Campbell has added a rather incongruously mellow soundtrack to the mayhem.
Campbell said in her blog "Before long I realized there were about 100 sharks in total, some as long as 4m, all in a frenzy over fresh whale flesh. I have to say that I felt pretty massive playing chicken with waves barely the height of my ankle. You only had to get knee deep and suddenly you're sharing the same square meter of Indian Ocean with a tiger shark."
The surfer friends understandably decided to move a little further down the beach for their session in the waves.
