Rare video of shark eating giant squid goes viral – Shedd Aquarium's Tim Binder on what we can learn from this rare glimpse of an elusive animal

It's a video that very few people get to see, much less capture in person.

A TV crew was lucky enough to catch footage of an 8-foot shark feasting on a rare giant squid, off the Australian coast. The crew just happened to be filming in the area.

The giant squid was estimated to be over 12 feet long, but had already been partially eaten when the crew arrived. It was reportedly so heavy that the crew wasn't able to haul it into the boat to study it further.

This morning on "Early Start," Shedd Aquarium's vice president of animals collections Tim Binder explains how elusive these creatures are, and explains what scientists can learn from seeing this footage.
