Great White Shark Makes a 15 Feet Record-Breaking Leap into the Air in South Africa, Making it the Main Water Breach 2020

Sharks are the sea creatures to be feared. That has been clear since Steven Spielberg’s Jaws. That’s not all. They like being quite the gymnasts in the ocean.

One of the massive sharks is the great white shark. So when one of those recently made a 15 feet leap out of the water and into the air, it was the highest leap ever recorded in the world.

The great white shark specialist, Chris Fallows, caught the moment. He set bait for it at Seal Island, located in False Bay, South Africa while filming for “Shark Week,” aired in Discovery Channel. The footage was targeted for “Air Jaws: Ultimate Breach.”

Experts compete to get the best shot of the highest leap when sharks breach the water’s surface. Chris Fallows took the record for”Air Jaws” 2020 home. It was the highest breach ever made in the history of the series, by a great white shark. The stance happens when a shark is after a fast-moving prey.

Jack Kurr, the director of the series, pointed out that the great white shark is on the verge of dying out and how the series has helped create awareness on their habits. More should be done to conserve them.
