Great White Shark Caught Breaching Off Wellfleet

A sign warns beachgoers of the presence of great white sharks at Lighthouse Beach in Chatham

It jumped right up.

This big fellow just appeared out of nowhere with his mouth wide open - it was like someone had opened a packet of Tim Tams in another room.

Raw video: White shark's surprise breach caught on camera off the coast of Wellfleet, Massachusetts.

It also emphasises how it is becoming increasingly essential to conserve these remarkable creatures to stop them following megladons into extinction.

Researchers have tagged eight sharks off the Cape so far this season and have been urging beachgoers to be "shark smart" and use the conservancy's free app that provides information on white shark sightings and movements.

Dead fetus found toilet on American Airlines plane at LaGuardia
LaGuardia Airport tweeted "American Airlines flights at Terminal B may experience some delays to an out of service aircraft". The plane was being held at Terminal B while the medical examiner's office responded to the scene.

MA state biologist Greg Skomal was standing on the pulpit of the research boat last week when the shark made the leap, according to the Boston Globe.

Yet the sight of a 2,000lb great white shark breaching remains one of the holy grails of both scientific and nature watching.

As the top shark expert in Massachusetts, Greg Skomal is used to up-close-and-personal experiences with great whites.

The conservancy said scientists received multiple reports of breaching white sharks from fishermen and boaters - but encounters are rare.

"While encounters like this one are rare, this video shows that they're certainly possible", wrote the conservancy while sharing the terrifying video. "Did you see that?" he says as he immediately returns to looking for the shark. "White sharks are wild and unpredictable animals", they said, warning everyone to stay vigilant while in water.
