DRAMATIC underwater footage captures the moment a Great White shark turns into a real-life Jaws – jumping out of the water to ravage tuna bait. Known as ‘breaching’, the predatory behaviour mirrors the instinctive moves made when sharks attacks seals. The footage was shot by cinematographer Elke Specker during a five day trip to Guadalupe island, Mexico – a well known breeding ground for the fearsome shark. The filmmakers’ persistence paid off as the 15ft, 3,500 pound male leapt majestically in full view of the cameras. The dive marked Specker’s first time first time being up close and personal with a Great White – the largest predatory shark in existence.
