Video: Wicked Action at a Sardine Baitball in South Africa

Sharks and Cape Gannets dine on sardine baitball.
Time to get your energy boost with a video featuring a sardine run from South Africa.

The video was just put out by sharkexplorers.com and features Cape gannets, dolphins, sharks, and other marine life having a go at sardine baitballs.

According to their website, the baitballs occur "when a band of cold water gets pushed up the coast by changing weather patterns. This band funnels massive shoals of sardines up the East coast of South Africa towards hungry predators waiting."

This is a high octane dive video and you will most cetainly consider adding this dive to your bucket list.

The video was posted by Calvin Thompson and it is just over 3 and a 1/2 minutes long.
