Do you know what a sleeping great white shark seems like?


The White Shark certainly not been seen before, until now. An automatic submersible captured the first-ever video recording of a great white captivating a nap, and you can see it unknowingly hold some zzz’s by means of its mouth hanging broad open. It looks perhaps seven percent less terrifying than a great white that’s conscious.


The shark doesn’t stop swimming, despite the fact that its movement slows down enormously and its body goes keen on this tranquil auto-pilot mode. The great white has to stay on moving, or it would sink to the bottom and suffocate.

Discovery posted the footage through Shark Week 2016’s Jaws of the Deep and explains what’s happening below
