By Marjorie Sturgeon. CREATED Aug 21, 2014

If you need an example of how the food chain works, a fisherman’s video on YouTube is the one you want.

Posted on Aug. 19, the YouTube video shows an Atlantic goliath grouper fish eat a black tip shark caught on the fisherman’s line. The shark disappears in one bite from the grouper.

The YouTube poster says it happened off the coast of Bonita Springs, Florida, this month. The video has already gotten more than 11 million views after being featured on popular aggregation sites like Reddit and Digg.

Atlantic goliath groupers can grow up to 10 feet long and reach weights of as much as 800 pounds.
