Get ready for jaws to drop because we've got one of the coolest experiences to ever be caught on camera. If you're afraid of sharks you might want to look away or face your fears to see the most amazing thing ever.
Some lucky tourists were on a boat in Cape Cod, just cruising through the peaceful waters. Little did they know a great white shark was looming below them, hungry as a horse, or hungry as an 18-foot shark – whoever has a bigger appetite. Luckily, there was an easy meal waiting for the shark and thankfully it wasn't the people on board.
These photos captured one of the most unique experiences in nature, a great white shark feeding on a dead whale carcass on the surface of the water, in full view. Terrifying, amazing, beautiful and a little disturbing, this unbelievable moment left the tourists speechless and online viewers in utter amazement.
You've seen 'Jaws' right?
How could you forget this epic scene?
Or maybe you're a new-age shark movie fan.
Maybe 'Meg' was your thing.
Don't get me started on Shark Week!
The shark obsession is so real.
That's why people pay hundreds of dollars to swim with them.
For those that like to live a little less wild.
Safety not guaranteed.
These tourists were about to get the show of their life.
Now that's a mouthful!Photographer and marine biologist Joanne Jarzobski caught this amazing moment on camera when a great white shark decided to take a huge chunk out of a dead whale carcass.
From whale watching to shark watching.
Nature loves to recycle.Nothing goes to waste in the ocean especially when it comes to food. This finback whale was already dead when the great white found it and saw this as an opportunity for an easy meal.
I'm assuming this was everyone's reaction on that boat.
Now just how big was this shark?Facebook post that the shark was about 18 feet long. Think of a giraffe underwater. That's basically how long this sucker is.
The pictures don't even do it justice!

You can't always get this lucky.Business Insider, "and we were asked to try to document it on our way out on our whale watch."
It's a mix of emotions.
The circle of life.
Hyannis Whale Watcher Cruises made a statement regarding the event, writing on their Facebook that "While it always saddens us to see a dead whale, the great white sharks are helping to recycle it."
Everyone was truly floored!interview.
This is all actually quite positive.
