70 Tiger Sharks Devour Humpback Whale In Australia's Shark Bay

Probably best not to swim here.

Dozens of tiger sharks were caught on video attacking the carcass of a humpback whale off the coast of Western Australia last week. 

Tour company Eco Abrolhos captured the incredible scene at Shark Bay, about 500 miles north of Perth, using a GoPro camera and a drone. The footage showed the waters turning red with blood as the sharks tore into the carcass.

The company estimated that there were 70 sharks eating the whale:

"Something to show and tell the grandchildren," the company wrote on Facebook.

It was not clear if the sharks had killed the whale or if it was already dead from other causes.

Shark Bay is a UNESCO World Heritage Site known for its namesake sharks as well as other vulnerable and endangered species, including green and loggerhead turtles and a population of 11,000 dugong, which are related to manatees. The area is also recognized for its vast seagrass beds and stromatolites
