Sea Monster? Great White Shark’s Tag Reveals Surprising Data About its Death


A huge 9-foot-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.

Data captured on the device showed there was a rapid temperature rise from 46 degrees to 78 degrees Fahrenheit along with a sudden, sharp 1,902-foot plunge.

The researchers believe the data proves it was eaten by something much bigger, saying the temperatures recorded indicate that the shark went inside another animal’s digestive system.
