Gotta Watch: Hungry, hungry feeding frenzy

Unless you've grown up watching "The Crocodile Hunter" Steve Irwin religiously, or are a big fan of TV wildlife shows, chances are you haven't been up close and personal when it's feeding time out in the wild.

In today's Gotta Watch, we want to show you what happens when schools of sea creatures all get hungry at the same time.

When sharks get hungry

A large school of sharks off the coast of Perth, Australia, go on a feeding frenzy. Watch here as Australia's Network Ten catches this from a helicopter as the feared creatures of the sea pounce on food, and while doing so, on each other.

2010: Gator feeding frenzy on tape

One March morning in 2010, Ray Cason decided to take his boat out to go fishing. What he didn’t expect to see was a gator feeding frenzy. He caught the chaos on tape. If you've never seen this many gators together, watch it here!

2007: When fish attack

Now for some fish that are on frenzy, but not of the feeding variety. CNN’s David Mattingly was reporting on the ecological danger of Asian carp back in 2007 when the easily agitated fish started attacking him on his boat. David got hit by a 10-pound carp not once, but twice! It’s just something you have to see to believe.

    All that protein should be used for food to humans or use them for fertilzer instead of killing off menhade.

      Actually, according to Darwin, it's those that addapt the best that survice the most, no the strongests. (just saying)

    • no natural selection here

      No. Caesarian sections and antibiotics have divorced H. sapiens from healthy natural selection. Now everyone survives: weak and dumb. The smartest, most adaptable people have the fewest kids.

      Good point! Going all-natural is what makes self awareness, abstract reasoning and rationality perform at it's peak... wouldn't you say?

      No, I got you what you were saying all wrong, sorry.
      Letting nature take it's course would be the only way to ensure a NATURAL process in human and animal survival.
      Right ? Phew !!!

    Too bad we can't drop Eric Holder, Bill Maher, Michael Moore, Sean Penn, Nancy Pelosi and Louis Farrakhan right down in the middle of all those hungry sharks.
