Sea Lion Eaten By Shark Gets Revenge From Beyond The Grave

Sharks are probably the biggest bullies of the animal kingdom (or at least the ocean). Aside from humans and some whales, they are almost untouchable. Mother Nature created them to be killing machines. They have rows of teeth made for slicing through the most impenetrable skin, and they have backups in case one breaks. They have hearing that can locate a weak, defenseless sea creature up to 3,000 feet away. And if they had opposable digits, they'd probably go around giving other sea creatures really nasty Indian burns.

However, not even sharks are immune to the occasional godsmack. And this great white shark finally got what was coming to him off the coast of Western Australia.

When the shark washed up on the beach, marine scientists who examined the carcass found no visible injuries. However, they did find a recently consumed sea lion carcass in its stomach, and concluded that the shark probably choked to death on a big hunk of its victim.

"Such a large object may have damaged the shark's internal organs or impeded water flow into his gills, contributing to his death," said research scientist Rory McAuley. "Alternatively, the shark may have accidentally become stranded in his attempts to get rid of the obstruction."

Awesome. It's too bad the sea lion wasn't around to witness his vengeance. Even so, the shark got what was coming to him.

It's often claimed that revenge is a dish best served cold. But sometimes, immediate revenge, especially from beyond the grave, is pretty sweet as well! (Source)
