Rare image shows great white shark losing tooth during airborne attack on seal Published: February 11, 2014

A photographer off South Africa recently captured the moment a large great white shark breached the surface during an ambush attack on an unsuspecting seal, according to

What he soon found out was that in one of his images was a large triangular-shaped tooth, flying through the air.

Not a big deal for the shark. Great whites possess the ability to replace lost teeth rather quickly, and may lose more than 35,000 teeth in a lifetime. But it was a huge deal for the photographer, David Jenkins, because his rare image reveals more about the dynamics of a white shark’s ambush attack, reports.
