REMUS SharkCam: The hunter and the hunted

In 2013, a team from the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution took a specially equipped REMUS “SharkCam” underwater vehicle to Guadalupe Island in Mexico to film great white sharks in the wild. They captured more than they bargained for. (http://www.whoi.edu/sharkcam)

 PM me if I owe you a new pair of pants.This video shows a Great White attacking a REMUS (Remote Environmental Monitoring Units) SharkCam after, I’m assuming, he got sick of having his picture taken. Terrifying footage captures the sharks lurking below and ambushing their torpedo-shaped prey, fully equipped with six GoPro Cameras. Researchers target Basking Sharks near Cape Cod as well as Great Whites off the coast of Mexico. I don’t know, I can’t really blame them – I get that way when I don’t feel like having a camera in my face, too. More here.
