Sharks Attacking Dead Whale on Australian Beach

A group of around 100 sharks feasting on beached whales on an Australian beach have been captured on video.

Rachel Campbell, a surfer from Warroora Station, Western Australia, uploaded the incredible footage to Vimeo last week.

"I didn't understand why but before I could think I found myself running straight toward the horror," she writes on her blog.

"Picture about thirty sharks, most of which seemed to be tiger sharks, all destroying a whale laying only a few feet from the shore. The nightmare part was the mass of sharks devouring the one victim.

"The horror was only growing as I scanned along the beach. Over-sized beasts lined a stretch as far as I could see. Before long I realized there was about 100 sharks in total, some as long as 4m, all in a frenzy over fresh whale flesh."

In the video a brave -- or foolhardy -- woman in a bikini is seen approaching the group of tiger and reef sharks, also known as a 'shiver'.

"Not the most comforting when you surf the reefs that they own," writes Campbell.

Perhaps surprisingly, the horror didn't put her off surfing that day.

"We surfed. But we surfed about 1.5km off the beach... We surfed for a couple of hours in an ocean more raw then I have experienced...

"I will still surf here though, because it's not about merely surviving this ocean, its about living and breathing everything that this crazy place has to offer. Let's just hope those sharks are full for now."

THis vidoe is not real!
if i was a shark those waves would get annoying while i try to eat my dinner!
I would say the person who thinks walking in barely ankle deep water puts you at risk of being attacked by rather large sharks (that can't swim in ankle deep water) who are so preoccupied with enjoying the whale carcass you could probably sodomise them without getting bitten is lacking brains. But hey i actually read up on a subject before i comment on it so i guess I'm just weird.
Im never going into that kind of beach if there are that many sharks near shore

Annoying girl ruined it
stupid title: DEAD things aren't ATTACKED. Thanks to sharks and the like we don't have dead whales floating about until such time as they disintegrate. Just imagine how long THAT would take. But ATTACk, really?! Idiot title.
