We are back off the coast of San Francisco where an unexpected killing challenged the great white shark's supremacy as the ultimate predator. We return with the whale-watchers who witnessed a stunning act of nature as a killer whale rose to the water's surface with a great white in its mouth. The outcome left biologists mystified but now, with the help of a team of experts, we re-examine this extraordinary incident, and reveal an astonishing new perspective between the ocean's two top predators.
