360°, Diving with great white shark, 8K underwater video
The great white shark is one of the most well-known predators. It is reflected in other alternative names of this species: shark-maneater and white death. The lifespan of great white sharks is estimated to be as long as 70 years, making it one of the most long-living fish in the world. The white shark is notable for its size: the greatest length among these sharks ever registered is 6.1 meters. Great white sharks prey upon fish, dolphins and other marine animals, but not human beings: they are hardly digestible for sharks. But still, they are responsible for a great number of injuries and even deaths: in 2012 the number of accidents was estimated to be 272. In some areas, there is a tourist program “Diving with sharks”. The animal is attracted by meat, and the person wishing to have a look at it is taken under the surface of the water (at a depth ranging from 1.5 to 7 meters) in a special secure cage. This attraction is popular on the southern coast of Australia and Africa, as well as near Guadalupe Island located off Mexico’s Lower California Peninsula — the place of filming this video.
