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 GrindTV.com.

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, GrindTV.com reports.
