KULHUDHUFFUSHI, Maldives, Aug. 29 (UPI) -- A beach visitor in the Maldives captured footage of a hungry baby shark temporarily beaching itself in its quest to capture a fish.

The waves roll out as the shark catches its prey, leaving it temporary stranded on dry land with its lunch.

The shark wiggles its way back toward the water and is able to swim off with its catch when the waves return.
