Incredible insight into Great White behaviour – REMUS SharkCam

This video absolutely blows my mind. It shows that once a Great White has decided on attack, firstly you will not see it coming and secondly there is very little you can do. When the sharks are not in attack mode and just being inquisitive or territorial, there are slower approaches, gentle nudges and very little use of the mouth and teeth. While my absolute worst nightmare, I cannot help but be fascinated by these giant hunters who are the masters of their domain. Also keep an eye out for the teeth raining away while the shark is biting the camera, its absolutely unreal.

In 2013, a team from the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution took a specially equipped REMUS “SharkCam” underwater vehicle to Guadalupe Island in Mexico to film great white sharks in the wild. They captured more than they bargained for.
