shark attacks shark off California

The fisherman who caught a leopard shark in the waters off Southern California filmed the moment he fed his catch to a great white shark.

Bill Morales spotted the great white around half a mile off Dana Point Harbour and dangled the smaller shark off his boat to attract the predator.

It worked and the shark lunged for his meal, rocking Morales' boat.



Speaking to KTLA Los Angeles, he said: "I had a camera in one hand and I had the shark in the other hand, and he was going back and forth.

"I had to move my arm back and forth like a piston so that it wouldn't just pull me over."

Morales said the shark was so close he could see its eyes turn white just as it attacked.

He added that he was not scared and estimated the shark was up to 10 feet long.
