KHQ.com - Shark Week has been trending on social media this week, and while humans go crazy for Shark Week, a recent trending video on YouTube shows exactly what Grouper fish think about sharks. 


What's a Grouper? They are apparently giant fish with stout bodies and large mouths. I'd never heard of them before, but after doing some research, I've likened them to the "pigs of the sea." They aren't built for speed, but they love to eat. And they love to eat sharks, or so this trending video showing a Grouper fish eating a black tip shark off the coast of Florida. 

Some people are angry over the video, saying because the fishermen hooked the shark and didn't pull it in fast enough, they were basically serving it up on a little shark platter. Others say it's simply a perfect example of the food chain in action. As one Twitter user put it, "There's always a bigger fish." Or as Chief Brody would say, "You're gonna need a bigger boat."
