Great White Shark Breaches Next To Dive Cage To Catch A Bait
This is an impressive footage of a great white shark chasing bait in front of a diving cage off the coast of Gansbaai in South Africa. The video, captured on October 2, shows the huge shark breaching after brushing the cage.
The great white shark has no known natural predators other than, on very rare occasion, the killer whale. The great white shark is arguably the world's largest known extant macro-predatory fish, and is one of the primary predators of marine mammals.
Watch this incredible moment when the terrifying great white shark bursts through the water to snatch a bait right next to a dive cage.
The activity of being lowered into the sea in a protective steel cage in order to view sharks or other dangerous sea creatures at close range is called shark tourism, which is a form of eco-tourism rooted in having communities appreciate that local shark species are more valuable alive than dead. Instead of opting for a one time economic benefit of harvesting sharks for their body parts, communities are made to assist interested tourists who may want to see live sharks.
This amazing video shows the shark up-close as it tears the bait set up by spotters. This is about as up-close and personal anyone without a death wish should get to a great white shark.
