The female sand tiger is the aquarium's biggest shark.

Keepers said the female likely reacted violently because it was "startled." 

In all, it took 21 hours for the female shark to swallow its prey, though keepers expect the female shark to regurgitate its kill because ingesting it would be extremely difficult.
