SEOUL, South Korea —

Ever heard of a shark eating another shark? How about a shark eating another shark because of a turf war?¬†Well, that’s exactly what happened at the Coex Aquarium in Seoul, South Korea.

According to aquarium officials, an 8-year-old female sand tiger shark ate a (much) smaller 5-year-old banded hound shark in an aquarium tank. The aquarium believes the attack was caused by a turf war.

It wasn’t a quick meal, either. Apparently, it took the female shark 21 hours to finish eating her former tank-mate.
