Great white sharks may be the intimidating top predators in the sea, but take them out of there element (stranded on the shore in this case) and it’s a whole different story.
Divers in South Africa discovered just how helpless these creatures can be when they discovered a stranded 7-foot-long great white male off the Gansbaai coast. Since white sharks must swim in order to breath, the divers attempted to re-float him, but the shark was unfortunately unable to be saved.
“He had a very bloated stomach,” the divers said on YouTube. The divers suspect an internal injury is to blame for the death. Any death of a white shark is a huge blow to saving the species, as only a few hundred remain in South Africa.
