Video shows massive hammerhead shark hunting blacktip sharks off the coast of Florida


A drone recently captured footage of a huge hammerhead shark hunting a school of blacktip sharks off the coast of Florida.

According to the TCPalm, the 15-to-18-foot hammerhead was spotted last Sunday, March 12, near John D. MacArthur Beach State Park in northern Palm Beach County.

Every year, approximately 10,000 to 12,000 blacktip sharks migrate to Florida waters to, well, mate and eat, reports Smithsonian – just like everyone else on spring break.
