New South Wales, Australia – Australian diver Brett Vercoe and his wife filmed this group of sharks from the safety of their boat as the predators devoured the carcass of a dead sperm whale off the coast of Coffs Harbour, New South Wales.

The footage shows five sharks – three white pointers and two tiger sharks – as they chow down on the easy meal.

Vercoe and his wife spent over three hours watching the sharks, all of which were more than four-meters long.

The video has been watched over one million times on YouTube.
