June 7 (UPI) -- A humpback whale carcass rotting on a South Australia beach attracted numerous curious onlookers -- including a hungry great white shark.
Thomas' video revealed the whale wasn't just attracting human onlookers -- a great white shark was pacing in the water nearby the carcass.
Thomas said it appeared the shark was "patrolling back and forth near the whale, waiting for the tide to rise" so it could "get closer for a feed."
"So far the water around the whale hasn't been deep enough for the shark to get closer for a feed," Thomas said. "But the shark is patient."
