I guess this was inevitable, but the surprise is understandable. So when Greg Skomal and the Atlantic White Shark Conservancy was out looking for sharks, a white shark decided to look back.
While out on research trips, we’ve seen white sharks breach and we’ve received multiple reports of breaching white sharks this year from fishermen and boaters. While encounters like this one are rare, this video shows that they’re certainly possible. White sharks are wild and unpredictable animals. This is a good reminder of the importance of not becoming complacent and always staying vigilant when in or on the water.
