Great white shark leaps out of water to kill tiny seal

With fearsome power, a great white shark launches itself from the sea as it claims its favourite meal.

The 5,000lb predator had pursued a Cape fur seal through the waters off South Africa before lunging at it with such force that it became virtually airborne.

The little seal stood no chance against nature's ultimate killing machine, with its powerful jaws and 250 razor sharp teeth.

These astonishing images of great whites, which measure 12-16ft, were captured last week near Seal Island, just off the coast of Simonstown in False Bay, by British photographer Dan Callister.
