    What does a 2.7 meter Great White need to worry about?

    Godzilla? Huge shark eaten by mystery sea monster, according to scientists

    A HUGE 2.7-metre-long great white shark was eaten by an even bigger “mystery sea monster”, according to scientists.
    Researchers had tagged the healthy shark to track its movements as part of a study, but were shocked when the tracking device washed up on a beach in Australia four months later, just four kilometres away.

    Data captured on the device showed there was a rapid temperature rise along with a sudden, sharp 580-metres plunge.
    The researchers believe the data proves it was eaten by something much bigger, saying the temperatures recorded indicate it went inside another animal’s digestive system.
    The only theory they have so far was that it was gobbled up by a “colossal cannibal great white shark”.
    The case is detailed in an upcoming documentary by the Smithsonian Institute, called the Hunt for the Super Predator, which draws from an earlier ABC documentary The Search for the Ocean’s Super Predator.
    “When I was first told about the data that came back from the tag that was on the shark, I was absolutely blown away,” filmmaker Dave Riggs says in the documentary.
    “The question that not only came to my mind but everyone’s mind who was involved was, ‘what did that?’ It was obviously eaten. What’s gonna eat a shark that big? What could kill a [9-foot] great white?”
    The documentary will air in the US on June 25.

    Some thing has evolved with the ability to track the tracking device knowing there is a feed available

    Later referring to the "mystery sea monster" as a 3.7-metre-long great white shark, scientists were slightly less baffled.

    Orca, Big Great White, Big Tiger Shark. Maybe it got ill or injured then a dozen Oceanic Whitetips or Blue Sharks nibbled away at it?

    Just did a teeny bit of googling .. Most predatory whales core temp is 36-38deg c , Sharks such as the great white 7 - 14degrees c , giant squid at whatever the water temp is .. This rules out all three of those .. Temp too high or too low ..
    I'm thinking the shark swam down to a thermocline and swam around in 25.5deg c for a week and knocked the tag off.

    Much adoo about FA.
    But good for the researchers next grant all this publicity.
