Sharkception: A Shark In A Shark

Posted on August 21, 2013 by

Nothing taught me about the circle of life like seeing my albino frog with our shark-but-not-a-shark fish in its mouth did. As hard as I tried to save the poor little guy from our frog’s pale webby fingers (which was really limited to yelling at the fish tank), there was nothing I could do. The damage was done. He was a goner. But instead of letting the frog enjoy the rest of his “meal,” I pulled the fish’s half-eaten body from the aquarium and gave him a proper toilet funeral.

Just in case you can’t figure out what a frog eating a shark-fish would look like, it kind of looked like the photo of a shark in another shark (a.k.a. Sharkception) above. Unbelievably enough, this apparently isn’t photoshopped. This photo was taken by someone in¬†University of Delaware’s Ocean Exploration, Remote Sensing, Biogeography (ORB) Lab as scientists were catching the sharks they tagged for research in the Delaware Bay. According to the Facebook photo, that’s a three-foot dog shark in a tiger shark.

The world is a cruel, cruel place.
