A male shark likely encroached on the turf of a female shark at a South Korean aquarium.
A different spokesman for COEX told AFP that “the sand tiger shark’s instincts are to attack if its territory is threatened, especially during breeding periods.”
Only the smaller shark’s tail was still visible when COEX opened Friday and it will stay in her mouth for a few more days, aquarium officials said.
But this lady shark can’t have it all: She’ll probably regurgitate the rest of the male shark’s body in about a week because she can’t fully digest him.
