GOLIATH

Watch a goliath grouper remind a spear fisherman who’s the boss at the bottom of the sea.

In the video below, a goliath grouper attacks spear-fisherman Arif Sabir while he’s fishing off the coast of Jupiter, Florida.

The brutish grouper sneaks up on Sabir and takes a hearty chomp into his foot. Luckily, Sabir was uninjured, but to add insult to injury, the goliath grouper stole his catch along with the speargun it was attached to.

Sabir’s wife filmed the incident on her GoPro Hero3. Check it out.
