Sa Bunganga ng Pating (In the Shark's Jaws) is a sarswela in three acts, written by Julian Cruz Balmaseda on 15 Sept 1921. Its music is by Leon Ignacio. In the same year, it was premiered at the Manila Grand Opera House.

This play in Tagalog explores the use of peaceful means or due process of law to fight the injustice of the powerful landlords. This theme is unusual to traditional sarswela.
