The Magnificent Great White Shark: Killing Display

Have you ever seen how a shark have their dinner? Check it out below. Full of intensity and so vigorous. The shot captures the splendor and horror of a two ton great white shark weighing leaping 10ft(3 m) from the water as it closes inevitably on its victim. After reaching speeds of up to 35mph on its ascent from the depths, the shark uses serried ranks of razor-sharp teeth to tear into the seal. These dramatic pictures, taken near Seal Island, in False Bay, the coast of South Africa. "The sharks feed on young seals when they are attempting to return to Seal Island after a few days out feeding," The wildlife photographer Chris Fellows said. "The sharks will bite the seal, typically in half in the first go, and then come round and pick the other half up. It is all on the surface and it happens in a few minutes." The average great white in the waters around Seal Island measures between 12-16ft, with the biggest being a near 20-feet long giant spotted in 1997.
