Feeding frenzy – A Cape Town Tourism photo essay

In mid-September, the carcass of a Bryde’s whale, floating in False Bay, Cape Town, attracted about 28 great white sharks over a two-day period. Though the sharks fed furiously to begin with, they eventually moved around the whale lethargically, their bellies visibly distended, as they mouthed at the carcass, looking for the highly nutritious blubber.
