(Scroll down for video) A female shark that became angry when a male rival entered its territory in an aquarium, decided to eat it alive, according to a video uploaded to the Internet.

The largest shark at the aquarium in Seoul, was seen swimming with her rival’s tail sticking out of its mouth after eating it alive.

The 8-year-old female shark is nearly 7.5 feet long, while the 5-year-old victim was only 5 feet long.

The female shark began eating her rival on Thursday, and on Friday, visitors at the aquarium watched in amazement as the attacker swam around the tank with the tip of the victim’s tail hanging from its mouth.

None of the other sharks in the tank were injured.

Experts believe that the victim will remain in the attacker’s mouth for up to five days, before it will be spit out as the female will not be able to digest such a large body.

Employees at the aquarium said that the sharks sometime fight over territory, but this was the first time that a shark killed its rival.
