UFIATA MOUNTAIN, New Zealand (CBS4) – Scientists exploring an underwater mountain in New Zealand caught a fierce battle on camera.

Video captured on March 27 shows a caridean shrimp and a midwater dragonfish battling it out on the ocean floor. The shrimp was seen impaling and consuming the dragonfish while alive.

On its website, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration called the fight an “impressive display of predatory behavior.”
