Beachwalkers found a dead shark on a Libyan beach.

After first obesrvations, they pulled a 11-inch rostrum, the nose of a swordfish, from the back of the shark.

The 11.8-inch blade is said to have punctured the shark’s heart.

According to experts, the attack happened about three days before the body was found and believe it was an accidental collision, even if swordfish are predatory fish known to attack sharks.

Such attacks have been documented since the 1960s, but the recent discovery provides the first example of how deadly the swordfish’s spike actually is.

This amazing story of a dead female thresher shark killed by a swordfish’s rostrum is described in more details in a new scientific paper in the journal Ichthyological Research.
