WATCH: Great white devours tuna head in slo-mo

Footage of a great white shark devouring a tuna head has selachophobiacs (those afraid of sharks) reeling in their seats.

The footage, shot in slow-motion, shows the shark chomping on the head of a tuna. The shark proceeds to shake the tuna from side to side before disappearing. The video was filmed off the coast of Mossel Bay in the Western Cape.
