A few beach-goers witnessed an incredible scene at a North Carolina shore a few years ago.

Yes, that’s a shark feeding frenzy.

They were at it for at least 5 minutes.

According to the video’s uploader:

“For more than five minutes, the sharks were observed swimming in and out of the surf, some of which became beached in the fury. Donnie Griggs, the cameraman who captured the footage, is an avid waterman who spearfishes, dives, swims and surfs at Cape Lookout often.”

“We want it to be clear that Cape Lookout and the surrounding beaches of Eastern North Carolina are extremely safe for swimming. The presence of these sharks and large schools of fish is actually a sign of a very healthy ecosystem.”

More Feeding Frenzies Captured on Video

A feeding-frenzy takes place when predators in the wild overwhelmed by the amount of prey available.

For example, a large school of fish can cause nearby sharks to enter a frenzy.

The term is most often used when referring to sharks or piranhas.

More Sharks: Embalmed Great White Relocated

A dead 4,000-pound great white shark that was suspended in fluids inside an abandoned Australian wildlife park has found a new home.

The shark, which has been called Rosie, was discovered by urban explorer Luke McPherson, or “Lukie Mc,” who posted images and a video of the animal on social media. He found it inside the Wildlife Wonderland Park in Bass, south of Melbourne. His video of the finding went viral on YouTube.

After images of the shark were shared en masse on social media platforms, some people called for it to be moved to safety. According to the Daily Mail, some vandals tried to break into the shark tank, which was filled with green embalming fluid.

Crystal World and Prehistoric Journeys in Meadows, Australia, said it would rehome the shark, according to the Mail.

But a spokesman, Shane McAlister, said it will difficult to restore shark, which died in 1998. He said vandals threw trash inside the shark’s tank.

“It’s a remarkable thing, for starters with all the vandalism and everything that has happened to the actual wildlife park and to Rosie’s tank,” he said.
