Shark Vs. Shark at the Mall of America

Shark attack in Minnesota? Who woulda thought? Fortunately, the victim was another shark, and that shark survived. But not before a tunnel full of aquarium visitors experienced a true, raw display of nature.

Jessie, the nine foot, 300 pound sand tiger shark is the biggest shark in the Underwater Adventures Aquarium at the Mall of America. On Friday, she chomped down on a four and a half foot, 50 pound white tip reef shark.

Workers used a pair of feeding tongs to grab the tail of the reef shark, pull and eventually free the little shark from Jessie's death-grip.
