Do you know what a sleeping great white shark looks like? It’s never been seen before. Until now. A robotic submersible captured the first-ever footage of a great white taking a nap, and you can see it innocently catch some zzzs with its mouth hanging wide open. It looks maybe seven percent less frightening than a…
This happened just off the dock for the Alcatraz Island ferry in downtown San Francisco. Waters surrounding the city are some of the most great white infested in the world.
The coolest thing about being a shark is that you can swim around all you want in the ocean and you don’t have to be afraid of, well, sharks. That’s only semi-true but look at this hammerhead shark moseying about on the ocean floor and it passes by all its shark friends without a worry in the world. No one messes with…
This man was fishing in Australia when he lured a massive fish in. Or so he thought. Instead, a much bigger fish—a hungry white shark—suddenly emerged from the water to steal his catch right off the line. Far from being scared, the fisherman seems to enjoy the scene—if it was me I would have to ask for a clean pair…
I'm not sure whether this bed will instill a lifelong fear of sharks or will inoculate a kid against any sort of shark phobia, but that baby does not look happy.
National Geographic is reporting on this amazing photo of a shark taken in Mossel Bay, South Africa, by 26-year-old art teacher, amateur diver, and photographer Amanda Brewer while working at eco-tourism company White Shark Africa. From her description:
Shark cages are meant to keep you in and wildlife out. But it seems as if one sea lion didn't quite get that message.
At first, you might think that Croc vs. Shark is just something that gets discussed in the writers' rooms at SyFy. But there are some places in the world where crocs and sharks do swim the same waters. Like in Australia.
Scientists from the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute recorded this video of great white sharks fiercely attacking their SharkCam, an autonomous underwater vehicle with several cameras inside pointing at different directions. It shows how they attack their prey in Guadalupe Island, Baja California, Mexico.
Scientists in Australia tagged a healthy 9-foot great white shark as part of program to track these animals. Four months later they found the tracking device washed up on a beach. Something—something really big—had eaten this apex predator. But what creature could dine on such ferocious prey?
Meet man's best friend of the ocean, the shark. Wait, what? It sure seems like that in this video. Watch as this adorable (?) Caribbean reef shark waddles its way over to the scuba diver as if it's asking her to pet it. And when she's done petting, the shark wants more!
Despite the museum's best efforts, the gray whale kept jumping out of the paper on which it had been drawn. It wanted nothing more than to do battle with the shark painted beside it, and every day it strained against the bounds of credulity to do just that.
Looking at this video of a great white shark biting and nearly sinking an inflatable boat, it seems that looking for them in this type of vessels is not a smart idea. Fortunately, the South African film crew on board wasn't hurt, but the boat was seriously damaged and was sinking as it limped back to port.
Adam Fisk hooked an 11-foot hammerhead shark near the coast line and ended being towed for 12 miles, which were covered in about two hours. According to Fisk, the shark ate a 5-pound bonito from his kayak. Another hammerhead was following him too.
Pretty neat indeed, but you should definitely never do this. Like your second grade teacher told you: look with your eyes, not with your hands.
There's something about this video that fills me with terror more than any other shark clip I've ever seen. It's not its monstrous looks, but the vision of it coming at you out of nowhere, accelerating until it engulfs your head with its jaws. The complete video is even worse.
Some images need little in the way of introduction. This one shows a soldier climbing a rope ladder attached to a helicopter above infested waters. Soldier. Rope ladder. Helicopter. Sharks. Wow.
Measuring only about a foot and a half long, the lanternshark may seem distinctly less impressive than its larger shark cousins. But this diminutive fish has mastered the art of bioluminescence, concealing themselves from prey while challenging any potential predators.
Remember that fake image of a Dubai shopping mall flooded by a broken shark tank? Well, it has happened for real inside a shopping center in Shanghai, China, where 33 tons of water and three sharks invaded the mall after the glass shattered into multiple deadly shards. There are 15 people injured.
Even when you're on dry land, you may not be completely safe from sharks. Golfers at San Juan Hills Golf Club in San Juan Capistrano, Calif., got a bit of a shock this past Monday when a two-foot-long leopard shark dropped from the sky onto the 12th hole. So how did this sea creature find itself five miles from the…
