A global citizen science platform to discover, share and identify wildlife
Getting close to the Great White
Gansbaai, South Africa
They coming this week i still editing photos very sun :):)
Gerardo where are YOUR great white photos?
Amazing! But I agree with Karen you should add a scientific name.
Hi Kevin! Please can you add the scientific name so that we can take this off of the "unknown" list & add a link (wikipedia etc) to the references. Because we have a global user base & sometimes many different common names for the same species, the system will continue to show a spotting as unidentified until the scientific name has been completed.
Beautiful apex predators!
HOW WONDERFUL :)
¡¡¡ Impresionante !!!!
it is quite common for Great Whites to raise their head out of the water to "take a look" however yes this one was encouraged
I've never heard of great whites spy-hopping (whales are air-breathing so it's more natural for them); I wonder if bait was dangled for this guy to come out of the water?
Friday wildlife fact!"Sharks appeared over 425 million years ago, while earlier humans (hominids) date back before 5 million years."http://www.facebook.com/projectnoah/post...
Hi Kevin! You should consider submitting your spottings to a mission. You can click on "Edit this spotting" at the top of every spotting and under the "date field" you will find the missions field. Let us know if you need help with this :)
wow! this is awesome! i love sharks!
Spy Hopping is when whales stick their heads out of water to look around. Thats what this guy looks like he is doing. I am attaching a link to a NG article on Great White spyhopping http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/...

Yikes! What an amazing shot! Not only did you see a great white but it is spy hopping (I think). Amazing
