In scenes reminiscent of Jaws, a huge Great White Shark has been snapped off the shore of Majorca.
Scientist Ricardo Sagarminaga van Buiten drove the campaign Alnitak, on which the Great White was spotted. He shared the great photograph on the Alnitak Facebook page and remarked to state the gathering had taken after and watched the shark for a little more than 60 minutes.
As per Van Buiten, this is the main logical proof of a Great White in Spanish waters for over 30 years.
In the post, the group expressed: “as of late there were conceivable unsubstantiated sightings and different bits of gossip, yet this is the principal logical perception of the nearness of the white shark in Spanish waters for no less than 30 years.
“On this occasion, this historic sighting has been photographed, filmed and contemplated by a crew of 10 people from five countries.”
There are accepted to be 47 distinct types of shark living in the Mediterranean Sea, including the Great White.
Closer to home, a monstrous 15ft (4.5 meters) thresher shark, was seen in Devon a week ago.
Dr Tom Brereton, was out adrift simply off Lyme Bay with a vessel heap of travelers when the colossal fish hopped out of the water and slapped its tail onto the surface.
Tour guide Tom, who works at Naturetrek, which sorted out the visit, stated: “We were on a Naturetrek wildlife trip into Lyme Bay looking for dolphins, whales and seabirds.”
It has already been an interesting year in Lyme Bay with sightings of minke whale, Risso’s dolphin, basking shark and ocean sunfish as well as the more usual common and bottlenose dolphins, so expectations were high.
“Then in the deeper waters about 25 miles out I saw a big animal leaping clear of the water 200 metres ahead of the ship.”
He added: “Seeing the shark leap out of the water really was a surreal and breathtaking experience.”
