This fascinating clip of sharks feeding deep down in the ocean is intense! From BBC’s upcoming nature documentary series, Blue Planet II, the scientists and filmmakers encounter several aggressive bluntnose sixgill sharks (cow sharks) feeding on a whale carcass over 700 meters (2300 feet) down.

Phelps vs. Shark: Great Gold vs. Great White? W.t.F!! We guess in the age of "alternative facts" dished out almost daily by one of the most powerful man on this planet and his entourage, a social media universe that is dominated by attention whores and greedy "marketing professionals" spin-doctors the facts and reality are collateral damage!
In layman's terms this so called "race" was - as expected - a bunch of hyped up viralized BS!
Shark Week is around for somewhat 25+ years now we believe. It was ok at the beginning and had some actual educational value.
But what you guys at #DiscoveryChannel serve up lately (5+ years) should be in Las Vegas in some circus program!
Sharks and people are not comparable swimmers. Not even close. Humans, even super-humans like Michael Phelps, swim no faster than 6 miles an hour. Great white sharks hit 25 m.p.h.
That was by no means a "race", Michael Phelps would not stand the slightest chance in speed against any of the large sharks even if he uses fins made from unobtainium and had a jalapeno pepper injected you-know-where!
So why do you folks at #DiscoveryTV not use your media power to raise awareness and help protecting the Great Whites and other shark species so generations to come can see this majestic predators in his natural habitat.

Great White Shark in Sea of Cortez. 14ft (guestimated by author) injured Great White semi-beached in 3 ft water at a #BajaPeninsula beach. As the videographer stated at end of his clip, the shark had obviously a collision with a boat causing 2 propeller wounds, 1 about 6 inches deep on his back.
He does not believe, as initial stated in video, that wounds been mortal and shark has been sighted the coming days up and down coast in shallow water.
It might be a correct assumption that he was looking for "easy" food in form of sting-rays as he was not able to hunt for his usual prey.
There is some blood in the video as a buddy of videographer does not know how to do the "ray shuffle"...... We all learn the hard way......
Also, if you offended by "bar soap in mouth" language you better turn the sound of. Tons of "F-words" and similar in video.....

That was pure luck for the viewer/photographer in the cage at time to escape unhurt!! Best example why +Shark Society does NOT promote or participate in cage diving, baiting or chumming! 
Plain and simple: It does alter the natural behavior of the animal! A #GreatWhiteShark would never attempt to enter this cage if not baited!

Newly released video from a high-definition shark cam. New device created at the Monterey Bay Aquarium and the aquarium's research institute MBARI is designed to stay on the great white for several months, withstand dives as deep as 3,300 feet and survive bursts of acceleration to speeds up to 25 miles per hour.

Sharks range in size from the largest fish on the planet to the length of your palm. See how you compare to some of these vulnerable predators that are so crucial to the ocean's health.
