Species Battle: Grouper vs Shark

Youtube user Gimbb14 was fishing off the coast of Bonita Springs, Florida and learned one thing that day: Don't mess with a grouper the size of a small car


A few days ago the fisherman was about to reel in a black tip shark when a Goliath grouper snatched his catch and ate the 4ft shark in one bite.

Goliath groupers can grow up to 3 meters (10ft) in size as weigh up to 360kg (790lb).
