How to escape a great white shark attack: Plucky seal uses a daring survival technique
as it comes under attack from the ocean’s most feared predator


Wildlife photographer David Jenkins, 42, took these amazing photographs near Seal Bay, South Africa
In the photo it looks as if the seal is trying to chase the shark but it is trying to keep away from its sharp teeth
Seals constantly change positions with each other as they travel to try to confuse any predators

WOW That was one lucky seal, you would have thought it wouldn't stand a chance, but when you think about it, it makes sense to stay on the Tail of the shark, and they are more agile than the shark so it easier for it to stay away.

I find the best way to avoid sharks is to not go into the sea

Of course if your diet is fish and you're a seal you can't really avoid it! Love the seal's technique... but it's the shark it doesn't see that will get it, I suppose that's why sharks use the coming up from the deep technique to catch them by surprise!
