From choking on a puffer fish to a teacher gone missing, here are 10 of the most incredible and disturbing things ever swallowed by sharks.
10: Shark on Shark Crime
Perhaps one of the most unexpected things ever found inside of a shark was another shark. Of course, this really is just the circle of life. The little fish is eaten by the bigger fish, and the bigger fish is eaten by the even bigger fish.
Everyone who goes diving should bring a GoPro with them! It’s the best way to document your experience underwater. You never know what might happen! But you’re not supposed to let sharks swallow your camera!
8: Giant Sea Turtle
You might think that a great white shark can eat whatever it wants, and that may be partly true. However, sometimes a great white shark bites off far more than it can chew. In 2019, the gruesome images surfaced of a 4500-pound great white shark covered in blood!
7: A Human
As you might expect, one of the most disturbing things ever swallowed by a shark was a human. In our next story, the remains of a kayaker were found inside the belly of a giant tiger shark just days after the person went missing.
6: Porcupine Fish
By far one of the strangest things ever swallowed by a shark was a porcupine. But not the kind of porcupine you might be thinking of. A hungry shark tried to swallow a spiny porcupine fish, which resulted in the unfortunate demise of the shark.
5: Thousands of Plastic Pieces
It’s pretty old news by now that the ocean is full of plastic. But it might be even worse than previously imagined. According to the BBC, a new study has found that the waters are so contaminated near Indonesia that whale sharks could potentially be swallowing hundreds of pieces of plastic.
4: Swallowed Whole
In this case, instead of being something strange that a shark swallowed, let’s check out a recent story in which a shark was completely swallowed by some random fish. This happened in 2019 during a deep-sea feeding frenzy off the South Carolina coast.
3: A School of Fish
The coolest photo of 2020 has been awarded to the camera guy who managed to capture the exact moment that a whale shark had an entire school of fish in its mouth! It’s one thing for a shark to open its mouth and swallow a few fish, but this photograph is simply amazing.
2: Plenty of Birds
By far the strangest things found consistently inside the bellies of sharks are feathers from birds. Sharks live in the ocean and birds live in the sky, so it doesn’t really make any sense that bird feathers are continuously discovered inside sharks. Just what exactly is going on here?
1: Teacher Swallowed Whole
This story is pretty terrifying. In 2014, a 28-year-old teacher was literally swallowed whole by a great white shark during a diving session off the coast of Australia. Sam Kellet was out on the water with friends and they were supposed to dive west of Adelaide, but a fire warning forced them to move spots.
