# If a super massive black hole captures a very small black hole, would the smaller black hole be immune to spaghettification?

I think to answer this question we would have to fully understand the nature of black holes. It seems to me that the smaller black hole could have a lower density than the larger one. In this case the smaller black hole might be effected by the tidal forces of the larger black hole. But if the densities of the two black holes were the same, wouldn't the smaller black hole be immune to spaghettification?

• If we trust GR, then both black holes are already ring-singularities. What does it mean to spaghettify spaghetti? – CuriousOne Jul 6 '15 at 5:58
