HORROR video shows huge 10ft shark circling boat off Mallorca in attempt to steal fisherman’s catch.
The clip shows the beast approaching the boat and repeatedly biting the tuna that was hanging over the side of the vessel.
The animal that appears to be a mako shark was spotted by local fishermen near Cabrera.
The video went viral in Spain – being shared by Ultima Hora newspaper and posted on WhatsApp as people hit the beaches.
But despite spreading like wildfire, it appears the video actually came from a YouTube clip first uploaded in 2019.
It shows the moment the shark slowly approaches the boat after spotting its prey.
The beast then attacks and bites the tuna’s head repeatedly.
We hear one of the fishermen say: “It’s coming from below, what a beast”, while another exclaims: “He eats half of it!”.
The predator swims away for a few moments but quickly returns to finish its meal.
While the shark can be seen devouring the tuna, the fishermen can be heard debating what type of shark it is, with one claiming it is a great white and the other insisting on the fact that it is a mako.
The clip ends with the half-eaten tuna still hanging off the edge of the boat.
It comes as another massive shark was spotted circling Cala Mondragó in Mallorca last month.
Meanwhile, two sharks have been spotted prowling near Ibiza beaches within days of each other.
Vacationers filmed a blue shark next to rocks near Cala des Moro, a cove in the urban area of the resort town of San Antonio.
Another was spotted in the water off Sa Caleta, a horseshoe-shaped bay lined with fishermen’s huts and a popular swimming spot with locals on the island’s southwest coast.
