Researchers at the University of Delaware’s ORB LAB posted this photo of a shark within a shark on Facebook in late July. The lab memebers were using a small fish called a menhaden as bait to recapture sharks they had previously tagged.

According to the Facebook post, a 3-foot-long shark known as a dogfish swam up and snatched the bait moments before a large female sand tiger shark swallowed the dogfish.

GrindTV posted about the photo Wednesday, calling the shark-on-shark-on-fish action the ”Turducken of the sea.”

According to ORB LAB, the dogfish was released alive after researchers gave it a small ID tag.
