great white shark photos

TE0156-D. Great White Shark (Carcharodon carcharias) surging forward powerfully. Note aerated water streaming from its gill slits (and also the tiny stream from the spiracle in front of the gill slits). Most sharks, including great whites, are obligate ram ventilators, which means they must maintain a forward swimming motion in order to breathe. Water enters the mouth and then passes over the gills, where oxygen is removed from the water and enters the bloodstream of the shark. Guadalupe Island, Baja, Mexico, Pacific Ocean.<br />
