The thousands of fish in this huge baitball don't stand a chance against the massive reef shark eyeing them up for lunch. The school of fish packed closely together, swimming frantically, in the vast ocean - but were no match for the hungry predator.
The Grey Reef Shark cut through the baitball with his mouth open to scoop up the small fish. Survivors fled for their lives, heading for a coral reef hundreds of feet below, to hide among the rocks. SEE OUR COPY FOR DETAILS.
