Photographer Captures 'Once in a Lifetime' Image of Great White

Sharks are some of the most fascinating creatures on the planet. They have remained virtually unchanged throughout history. In fact, most sharks are at the top of their food chain and have very few, if any, predators.

As humans, we have always been drawn to the deep waters of the ocean and the creatures that live beneath the surf. "Shark Week" has become a massive sensation that fans look forward to watching each year.

The movie "JAWS" also played a major role in bringing the popularity of Great Whites to mainstream media. Now, one photographer has just captured an image that appears to be just like the one from the iconic movie.

"The 17-foot-long predator is seen with a large set of jagged teeth as it swims overhead in the image. Euan Rannachan, 32, is the British photographer and filmmaker who snapped the picture from only a few feet away inside a cage, according to The Daily Mail.

Funny enough, they have actually named this shark and know which one she is.

"The shark in my image is a female and her name is Squirrel. We'd been with her for a while. We have these people on the boat called shark wranglers and they throw these two-foot chunks of tuna to get the shark close to the surface," the photographer told the British news site.

He went on to explain her behavior. Joe mentioned how sharks feed and why they come to the surface.

"That's exactly what Squirrel was doing here, she was fed up probably messing around on the surface and dived back down under the boat. It was really deep there but the water clarity was amazing," he told The Daily Mail.
