Video: Slow Motion Close Up Mako Shark Bite

If you dig sharks, you’ll like this one. From the Guy Harvey Research Institute, a nice close up of a shortfin chomping down.

From the Guy Harvey:

“Here’s a shot of a Mako Shark as it investigates our dredge camera… the dredge camera survived… and the research results are amazing (as you’ll see below)

The tagging and tracking of shortfin mako sharks off the coast of Isla Mujeres, Mexico is providing scientists with remarkable and previously unknown details about the timing and long-distance migratory movements of this vulnerable species in the Atlantic Ocean.

An expedition headed by the Guy Harvey Research Institute (GHRI) at Nova Southeastern University, tagged mako sharks with the satellite reporting SPOT tags. Unlike the more commonly used pop-up satellite PAT tags, SPOT tags should provide multiple and more accurate daily detections, providing scientists with a high resolution view of the migration patterns of this animal.
