Animal Pictures: 15 May 2011

Each week, people continue to discover amazing animal pictures.

The courageous shark expert, Michael Rutzen, 40, has captured amazing scenes of a great white shark breaching in the oceans when it is hunting a smaller seal in False Bay, South Africa on Monday (May 9). The 40-year-old expert was brave enough to spot close-up pictures of sharks leaping up to 13 feet out of the water. In the stunning hunting, no seals are hunted or hurt. For a long time, Seal Island in False Bay, 30km south of Cape Town is considered as the best place to watch this huge animal. This is also the place where scientists acknowledge that great white shark behaves differently, including the highly unusual behavior of breaching than any other sites else in the world.
