Shark Week Day 3

Shark Week Day 3: Great White Shark. 

Made infamous by Peter Benchley's novel (and eventually the film of the same name) Jaws, the Great White is a fearsomely large predator.  Perhaps its most impressive, and terrifying, feat is its act of "breaching" (launching itself from great depths to the surface of the water to catch prey, often jumping completely clear of the water), found particularly in the South African breed.
