This eel's mother obviously never told it you should chew your food properly before you swallow it.
The apparently toothless terror wasn't able to dine out on a small shark that happened to be swimming by even though it looked like a free lunch was a certainty.
Despite getting his teeth around the unlucky shark and swallowing three-quarters of it, the eel couldn't finish off its dinner and eventually barfed the shark back up when it looked like it had got the perfect ready meal.
Suddenly the main course was off the menu, and the shark swam off as it nothing had happened, while the eel decided not to go back for a second helping.
