"The question that not only came to my mind, but everyone's mind who was involved was ‘what did that?' It was obviously eaten," says filmmaker Dave Ricks. "What's going to eat a shark that big? What could kill a three-meter great white?"
Great whites aren't entirely without threats, however. Orcas, and even other sharks, have been known to hunt them - though a specimen of this size would certainly have been no easy meal for either.
