The Great White shark is undoubtedly one of the most well-known and most awesome apex or macro-predator of the seas. It is the largest predating fish on earth and has earned a much maligned reputation as an indiscriminate man-eater. Despite the enormous popular and scientific interest in the Great White, it remains one of the least understood of the sea's creatures. Its awesome combination of size, menace and mystery, make the Great White Shark a modern day 'monster' that many people find irresistible.
Dirk Schmidt captures some awesome images of Great White Sharks in False Bay and illustrates the sharks' explosive presence during predatory events, and more than 120 colour images are displayed in Great Whites of False Bay - South Africa with additional contributions from Michel Zoghzoghi and Lee Nuttal. The images of Great Whites allow us to share a rare insight into Great White Shark behaviours in around the Seal Island area, and witness an aspect of the natural cycle of life at sea.
