REMUS SharkCam: The hunter and the hunted

When the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution team took their REMUS “SharkCam” underwater vehicle — equipped with six camera views — to Mexico’s Guadalupe Island, they expected to track and film great white sharks for scientific study. They had no idea that they would get the first recorded close-ups of predatory behavior by sharks in the wild.

In the archives: more shark videos, including Thresher Shark’s Deadly Tail, Incredible sardine run feeding frenzy, and our favorite: The Basking Shark.
