For seals, turtles and other tasty marine life, this might be the last image they see before they get snaffled up by a great white. Nerve-jangling footage captured off the coast of South Africa shows a hungry shark breaching with its mouth open wide – offering a front row view down its throat. The close-up clip shows the large carnivorous fish flashing its razor-sharp teeth and pink undersides of its gills with its black eyes shining bright. Incredible stuff.
The great white shark caught in the shallow surf off Santa Cruz’s Pleasure Point, died overnight. After the tide receded, the shark washed up onto the beach. California Fish and Wildlife was able to drive a flat bed truck down to the beach to retrieve it. The Pelagic Shark Research Foundation was first on scene. A team of veterinarians is on their way up from Southern California to perform the necropsy. There are no external signs of trauma to the shark so crews believe it most likely died from an infection of some kind.
This is the fearsome moment a great white shark devours a fleeing seal whole metres away from a fishing boat filming the encounter. Cage-divers filming beneath the water captured the moments before as the seal twisted and turned in the water inches away from the enormous predator. Attracted to the bait on a pole the shark soon realised something far larger was on the menu as the playful seal swam alongside it.
A Florida diver who noticed a shark acting oddly ended up removing a massive hook from the ocean creature’s belly. Josh Eccles said he was diving when one of the sharks swimming with the humans appeared to be trying to get his attention. Eccles said the shark was repeatedly bumping and nudging him, leading him to give the big fish a once-over to see if something was wrong.
“So this happened yesterday! While filming my girlfriend @helenpalacios with my drone a shark came close to tasting her. What I think happened was that the shark confused her fins for a fish, but then as soon as it realized it was a human it quickly backed off. The poor water visibility confused the shark. This is how most shark attacks happen in Florida specially this time of year when sharks like the blacktip are migrating through the Florida coast following schools of fish. Sharks aren’t man eaters they’re just carnivores who make mistakes like we do. Helen and I will continue to explore our beautiful ocean.”
When founder John Tabis brought The Bouqs Company to ABC’s “Shark Tank”, it seemed that all the “sharks” hated the product. “We all passed on it,” shark Robert Herjavec told ABC News. The Bouqs Company disrupts the flower delivery system by selling directly to consumers. It cuts out the layers of middlemen normally in the process. Despite not initially getting a deal with the sharks, The Bouqs Company has thrived. In the run up to Valentine’s Day this year, the company reported sales of over $1 million in a single day.
“Myself and two of my buddies were at the beach fishing for jacks while we saw a shark struggling in the surf. We realised it was wrapped around something and ran to see if we could help. At this point my buddy Adam jumped into the surf to rescue the black tip shark. We then got the fishing line unwrapped from around the body and took the hook out of its jaw. Adam then released the shark and it swam off to live another day.”
The great white shark follows the bodyboarder riding a wave and then spots the surfer sitting on his board waiting for another wave. He doesn’t appear to know the shark is approaching. When the surfer starts kicking his right foot in preparation to catch the wave, the sudden movement scares off the great white shark. It isn’t clear how the warning system works once a shark is spotted by a drone, or whether those riding waves in this video were made aware of the shark’s presence. But hopefully the system works.
47 Meters Down dives into a world of two sisters (Mandy Moore and Claire Holt) who become trapped at the bottom of the ocean when a diving expedition to observe sharks goes horribly wrong. When the cable attaching the observation cage to the boat breaks and the cage sinks to the bottom of the ocean, the sisters must figure out a way to get back to safety battling injuries, lack of oxygen, and, worst of all, blood thirsty, great white sharks.
“Having found an awesome new rope swing to hang out at on those hot Aussie days, I found out that I’m not the only one swimming in those waters… I then hunt down the infamous bull shark that’s know to survive and thrive in both fresh and salt waters with a hand reel, and cook it up right at the rope swing for lunch the next morning.”
While some people online are convinced the animal in the video is a juvenile great white, others believe it is a bull shark. ‘That’s a juvenile great white! And as scary as that is it’s amazing. I’m a little confused as to how a GW is able to swim that far up stream,’ one wrote. Another said: ‘My brain tells me it should be a bull shark in that part of Sydney, but looking at the footage all I see is a baby great white.’ What do you guys think?
They are known as one of the most dangerous sharks in the world – as footage of this terrifying bull shark attack seems to prove. Diver Kerry Daniel, 35, was spearfishing off the coast of north Queensland near the Great Barrier Reef when he recorded the moment the predator charged at him. Fortunately he was able to jam his spear gun into the shark’s mouth, leaving the creature writhing around in pain while he escaped uninjured.
