The ocean is filled with uncertainty and survival is never guaranteed. If you’re someone who fears the ocean, this video will give you another reason to stay out of the water.
The award winning series Planet Earth has always captured the most incredible natural phenomena in stunning high definition, with pristine detail. Now, thanks to a recently uploaded clip found on the BBC Earth YouTube page, the Internet got to witness a feverish feeding frenzy, that provided a first hand look at what goes on beneath the surface when the locals get hangry.
This aquatic battle started with some sea lions, trying to corner a school of thousands of sardines, which swim in circles, close to the surface, to avoid being caught. Interestingly enough, the sea lions can’t get the upper hand, without the help of additional predators.
Soon, tuna, diving sea birds, dolphins, and sharks start to join the party — quickly turning this necessary ritual of survival into an oceanic episode of Game of Thrones. Then, at the peak of the battle a giant whale comes into frame — swallowing countless sardines in one swift gulp.
The intensity of this clip showcases the instinctual efforts animals will put forth to work together to help ensure survival, proving that hunger’s grip on any creature will induce varied sorts of frenzy.
