Great White Shark attacks GoPro underwater robotic camera
Conservationists have captured dramatic footage of great white sharks attacking an underwater robot being used to study their behaviour.
Using a SharkCam equipped with six GoPro cameras, the scientists filmed the sharks displaying signs of territorial behaviour towards the probe.
In what appeared to be predatory attacks, sharks lurked in the darkness below the vehicle before swimming up suddenly and biting onto the tail or mid-section of the automated vehicle.
According to the conservationists, this is the same way that sharks hunt seals near Guadalupe Island off the West Coast of Mexico where the footage was filmed.
