White Shark Breaching

QuickTime Movie

At left is a QuickTime movie showing a spectacular double breach by a White Shark in False Bay, South Africa.  The footage was shot by Rick Allen of Nautilus Productions. The first breach goes completely out-of-frame because quite frankly Rick didn't expect the White Shark to be able to leap so high. But, by the second leap, Rick's long-time filming experience kicked in and he 'nailed it'!
