# Giant Isopods
The terrifying clip begins with two sharks swimming in the deep ocean on the hunt for food. One shark surveys an area of water just in front of a deep sea monitoring camera, the second following closely behind.
Suddenly, the second shark is seen spiralling out of control, before moments later, being left motionless. The shark has been attacked by a ginormous sea louse that latches onto its prey’s head. It suffocates the shark, slowly killing it before devouring its body. The alien creature is actually a giant isopod, a relative of the woodlouse that lives in the ocean. The terrifying animals come in various sizes and have been known to make bloody attacks in the past.
# Giant Moray Eel
In terms of body mass, giant moray eels are the largest of all morays. They can grow up to 9.8 feet in length and weigh 66 pounds. They primarily inhabit tropical waters in the Indo-Pacific region from East Africa to the Hawaiian islands.
Due to their immense size, they can be dangerous and have attacked scuba divers. But, unless provoked, they generally leave people alone. However, other creatures on the reef are less lucky. Not even sharks are safe from these slender, cave-dwelling marine predators.
When a giant moray ambushes a small whitetip reef shark resting on the coral, there is very little the shark can do. Struggling in the enormous eel’s jaws, the shark can only wish the eel would let go. But that doesn’t happen. The giant moray maneuvers the small shark into its mouth and swallows it alive, all the way to the shark’s tail. Moray eels have a second set of jaws called pharyngeal jaws that allow them this particular ability. These secondary jaws boast sharp teeth of their own and are efficiently used to restrain struggling prey.
# The Teeth of a Great White Shark
A great white can go through 20 000 razor sharp teeth in one life The great white shark is one of the world’s most notorious predators. But still, it would be nothing without its 300 serrated teeth. They’re designed to rip and grip through flesh, much like we use a knife and fork. And its jaw crunches down with almost two tonnes of force.
What is even more frightening is this fearsome fish has a never-ending supply of battle-ready blades. The great white’s teeth a rooted in the soft cartilage, not bone, and often fall out or break. Its solution is rows of replacement teeth found inside the jawbone. The new teeth roll info action like a vending machine; meaning razor-sharp weapons are always at the ready. A great white can go through over 20 000 teeth in its lifetime.
