Turns out that a shark feeding frenzy is mechanical, efficient, and involves beached animals chomping into sand for food.

“Look at all that, dude,” a cameraman says to his buddy. “Dude, look at that.”

His bro was maybe two feet from a shark slithering across the coast like a sidewinder—gearing his way like a leg-sweeping ninja.

User Brian Recker uploaded the rare feeding frenzy that took place Oct. 8 in Cape Lookout, N.C. He claims to have seen more than 100 sharks attacking a school of blue fish. The cameraman is supposedly fishing enthusiast Donnie Griggs, and Recker emphasizes that these Outer Banks beaches are “extremely safe” for swimming in the video’s description.
