Big Shark Bigger Ocean

Every year off great white sharks migrate to a small island off the coast of Baja California. This island is called Guadalupe. From late July through November the sharks congregate around the island, possibly to mate or to feed on the fur and elephant seals that inhabit the island's beaches. This particular shark has been documented for years and has been coming to Guadalupe for over a decade! Her immense size is evident, possibly even pregnant, she fears no one and its great to see such an amazing animal wild and free!
