A video recorded on the floor of the Atlantic Ocean shows sharks may not be the kings of the sea afterall.

Researchers with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration were working about 80 miles off the coast of South Carolina when they captured the video.

The researchers were filming a group of 11 dogfish sharks feeding on the carcass of a swordfish when a giant grouper appeared on the scene. The grouper swallowed one of the sharks in a single bite.
