Scientists in Australia tagged a healthy 9-foot great white shark but when they found the tracking device washed up on a beach they also found some interesting data. Something—something really big—had eaten this apex predator. But what creature could dine on such ferocious prey? The recovered device showed a rapid temperature rise and a sudden 1,900-foot change in depth. That’s all the information the scientists have. I shiver at the thought of this battle.
Also: I’ve changed my mind. I don’t want to go snorkeling in Australia any more.
The kaiju are coming.
