Save Our Seas scientist Alison Kock tags a Great White Shark (Carcharodon carcharias) to gather data about their movements off the coast of South Africa.
More about the great white shark can be found in our Great White Shark featured story.
I think this page rocks!
How, that is amazing. I would be totally scared out of my mind to come close to that shark.It truly look like "Jaws" from the movie. Any idea on how large that shark is? 12-14 ft? Thanks so much for the great work!
This shark was about 3.5 meters long. You will really be surprised at how quickly one's perception of these sharks changes from the "Jaws" like stereotype to one of awe and appreciation when you see them close like this. They are truly marvels of evolution, graceful and very complex animals. In reality they are nothing like Jaws at all.
It's amazing to see how close the girl is to the shark!
