The team saw killer whales, sharks, birds and other creatures devouring pieces of white meat.
An aerial photograph revealed a killer whale pulling along what Museum Victoria squid expert Mark Norman described as either the biggest giant squid on record or something he did not know.
If the tag was external on the shark, is it possible that another creature took only 1 bite at the shark, and doing so, ate the tag with it?
It doesn't have to be something that eat the whole shark.
