    Australian Institute of Marine Science fish biologist Mike Cappo dropped 16 baited cameras to depths of up to 50m to capture images of a female tiger shark stalking a sea snake. The 3m shark ate a bait can, then bit the camera, as the lucky snake slipped out of its jaws.

    Tell you the truth it look more like a mistaken identity to me the sharks looks alot more inturested the the bait than the snake. He dosent even chase after it
