Video: Incredible Slow Motion Action Showing Great White Breech

Great white breech. Shot by Biopixel at 10000 frames per second
Biopixel posted this amazing slow motion footage of a great white breeching while it attempted to grab at a bait line. In the past, we've seen other slo-mo videos but this one was done at a rate of 1000 frames per second which brings about absolute clarity.

And although the shark disappears for a bit at the top of the frame, this is a fantastic video that I'm sure you'll enjoy.  It was taken by Richard Fitzpatrick, who is one of the founders of Biopixel.
