A scary-look huge Great White Shark has been spotted at the coast of Majorca. The shark looks like it is straight out of a horror movie.
Biologist Ricardo Sagarminaga van Buiten was the leader of the expedition Alnitak, on which the shark called Great White was seen. He shared the shocking picture on the Alnitak Facebook page and captioned the picture to say the crew had followed and observed the shark for a whole hour.
According to the Biologist, this is a huge news because this is the 1st scientific evidence of a Great White in Spanish sea for more than three decades.
In the post, the team released a combined statement by captioning the image which said: ‘In recent years there were possible unconfirmed sightings and various rumors, but this is the first scientific observation of the presence of the white shark in Spanish waters for at least three decades. On this event, this historic sighting has been photographed, filmed and contemplated by a crew of 10 people from five countries.’
It is believed by the experts that there are forty-seven various species of shark living in the Mediterranean Sea, and out of the number one is believed to be the Great White.
Closer to the states, a huge 15ft thresher shark, was seen in Devon merely last week.
Dr. Tom Brereton, was on an official trip at sea just off Lyme Bay with a boat full of tourists when the massive fish jumped out of the blue water and splashed its tail onto the water surface.
A person named Tom, who works at Nature trek as a tour guide, which organised the tour in which the discovery was made, told that they were on a Naturetrek wildlife trip into Lyme Bay looking for dolphins, whales and seabirds.It was already been an interesting year in Lyme Bay with sightings of minke whale, Risso’s dolphin, basking shark and ocean sunfish as well as the more usual common and bottlenose dolphins, so expectations were high. Then in the deeper waters about 25 miles out he saw a big animal leaping clear of the water 200 metres ahead of the ship.
He then said: ‘Seeing the shark leap out of the water really was a surreal and breathtaking experience.’
We bet the that the experience was like that without a single doubt. The video below summarises all the details about the shark visually.
