Orcas have been filmed hunting down and killing a great white shark in a “surprise” attack.

Scientists said the footage from the episode is “unprecedented” and shows the exceptional predatory capabilities of killer whales.

Two killer whales off the coast of South Africa have previously been observed working together to hunt and kill sharks, including great white sharks.

“It surprised us,” said shark biologist Allison Towner.
