    A group of deep-sea scavengers were spotted feasting on the remains of a whale by ocean researchers who looked on as the fish, octopods, and marine worms picked the huge carcass clean.
    The Nautilus Live team filmed their macabre encounter during a livestream of their underwater explorations off the coast of California, and crew members can be heard gasping in awe at the exciting scene rarely caught on camera.

      I mean, it wasn't killed, it died and it fell to the ocean's floor, and it's remains are being eaten by other creatures. It's a little cool to be honest.

      Ok but in all honesty there are no meaningful sounds coming from the animals anyways. So if this were to be made into documentary footage you would have David Attenborough talking over with mellow music.
