Thrilling Close-Up Views Of A Shark ‘Attacking’ An Underwater Torpedo
By Wan Munirah, 05 Aug 2014
A group of researchers from the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution sent off the ‘SharkCam’, an underwater torpedo, at the coast of the Guadalupe Island in Mexico to study the great white sharks swimming in the area.
The torpedo was fitted with six cameras, and a guidance system that tracks signals emitted from acoustic tags attached to the sharks, allowing it to follow the sharks discreetly.
The resulting footage from the torpedo was far from what they expected—the team was treated to breathtaking close-up views of the shark attacking and biting the torpedo in swift motions.
Perhaps, this is the closest we can ever get in seeing these white sharks in action.
Check out the video from the ‘SharkCam’ below.
