Watch: Drone Films Huge Dolphins Hunting Shark

Rare drone footage from Australia shows the normally fearsome shark from an entirely different perspective as one finds itself the target of a hunting pod of giant dolphins.

Captured by Bruno Kataoka, the overhead video makes the shark look like a mere guppy as it swims frantically away from the three enormous animals.

While they may appear to be whales, experts say the creatures are actually dolphins with the dubious moniker of 'false killer whales.'

These identity-thieving animals are considered rather mysterious to researchers, despite their large population, making Kataoka's footage a serendipitous scientific achievement.

So when you head off to the beach this summer, perhaps your fear of sharks can be placated by the notion that they're looking over their proverbial shoulder out there as well.
