Close-up Footage of The Predatory Attack of The Great White Shark

In 2013, a team from the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution took a specially equipped REMUS “SharkCam” underwater vehicle to Guadalupe Island in Mexico to film great white sharks in the wild.

What you are about to see is not the usual shark attack through the bars of a shark cage we are so used to seeing in shark documentaries. You are about to get eye-to-eye with Great White Sharks! At @ 1:28, 1:50 and 3:05, you won’t want to miss the attack footage. The grating sounds of teeth against metal just add to the terrifying sight.

Reminds me of an attack dog tenaciously biting down on an intruder’s arm. The sharks must be mistaking the SharkCam for a real underwater animal that has invaded its territory. That the SharkCam came out of these predatory attacks in one piece attest to its tough construction.
