There is a world somewhere between reality and fiction. Although ignored by many, it is very real and so are those living in it. This forum is about the natural world. Here, wild animals will be heard and respected. The forum offers a glimpse into an unknown world as well as a room with a view on the present and the future. Anyone able to speak on behalf of those living in the emerald forest and the deep blue sea is invited to join.

I'm very surprised that this forum doesn't have a thread dedicated to 'Shark predations'... considering the fact that Sharks, especially the Great White, is one of the greatest and easily the most fearsome and devastating predator on earth! So, i'll start one...

"Sharks are apex predators throughout the ocean, yet relatively few studies have quantified or determined factors influencing their hunting behaviour and predatory success rates. The waters surrounding Seal Island in False Bay, South Africa, provide a unique opportunity to study predator-prey interactions involving Great White Sharks (hereafter white sharks). During the winter, white sharks visit Seal Island to hunt Cape fur seals. About 48% of surface attacks on seals result in successful kills. Attack frequency is high, averaging 6.68 per day, with as many as 43 recorded in a single day. Sharks attack seals on the surface via a sudden vertical rush, which propels predator and prey out of the water in an awesome display of power and acrobatic prowess"...

A truly fearsome creature but also one of the most amazing animals in the world (almost but not quite the perfect predator).

IMO, in this video as Shark is mostly a surface feeder, this scuba diver is lucky to escape the bite.
