And then its disembodied head continues to wriggle on the line.
The incredible footage was filmed off the coast of the Bahamas while a group of men fished in the sea.
At the start of the clip, the men seemed in good spirits as the fisherman snared a shark. He began reeling the shark towards their boat before another man called out that a bigger shark was on their trail.
He urged the fisherman to stop reeling the smaller shark in and wait to see what happened. Within moments, the huge shark attacked, stunning the group of onlookers.
There was a serious commotion in the water as the two sharks clashed with the fishermen delighted to have captured the exchange on camera.
The fisherman is overjoyed, initially, believing that he has captured both sharks. However, as he reels the line in, they quickly realize what has happened. The huge shark has mauled the smaller one, biting it in half.
