It sounds like an oxymoron, but even massively huge great white sharks all have to start small as, well, shark babies. Steve McNicholas snapped this photo of a young nippy one getting released back into the sea off Santa Monica beach by California State University’s Dr Chris Lowe. Presumably this was from a scene in last year’s documentary film Great White Shark, which was shot with the hope of enlightening us human scaredy cats to re-examine our fear of the endangered deep-sea predator.
