Shark Swallows Another Shark Whole

via National Geographic

A tasseled wobbegong blends into its surroundings, assisted by reticular markings and intricate skin flaps that break up the outline of its flattened body.Even though it's easy enough for a wobbegong to devour a big meal, scientists are unsure how the animal manages to process prey as large as other sharks. "There's been very little work done to establish exactly how wobbegongs digest their prey," Ceccarelli said. "Most sharks swallow their prey whole, so with a mouthful like [a whole other shark], digestion could take several days."
