A drone hobbyist has captured a pod of dolphins stalking and hunting down the ultimate sea predator.
Bruno Kataoka has filmed what experts believe to be four false killer whales, members of the dolphin family, expertly hunting the shark off Cronulla beach south of Sydney.
The dolphins, which grow between three and five metres long, were hunting a juvenile shark in a life and death battle.
After a desperate chase the leader of the pod can be seen attacking the shark, and dragging it down.
"National Geographic guys have been waiting months to get such a thing and we just happened to be there at the right moment at the right time," says Mr Kataoka.
The footage has excited marine experts as false killer whales are rarely spotted, despite large numbers living further out in the ocean.
"Oh it's amazing, that kind of footage is just so rare to catch," says marine biologist Georgina Wood.
