Sharks may no longer be the only thing to fear in the ocean.
"There's always a bigger fish!"
That's how some people are reacting to this incredible video of a Goliath grouper devouring a four foot shark...in ONE bite.
According to YouTube user Gimbb14, the grouper had been circling his boat for about an hour before the attack off the coast of Bonita Springs, Florida earlier this month.
Since being posted to YouTube on Tuesday, the video has already picked up close to three million views.

The Florida Museum of Natural History says Atlantic Goliath groupers can grow to about eight feet long and weigh 800 pounds, but they don’t normally eat sharks.
"A typical grouper diet will include spiny lobsters, shrimp, crab, stingrays and young sea turtles," the museum says.
Still, their sharp teeth and bigger mouths make it easy for them to swallow their prey whole.
