Did Colossus Learn to Breach Too? [Video]

Breaching is a learned  behavior of sharks in what is called sector 4.

Sector 4 is an area off the southern tip of Seal Island.  It is known as a primary attack zone for great white sharks to feed on seals. Sector 4 is unique in that its is one of the only areas known for sharks to breach out of the water.

Colossus, a 3,000lb great white shark,  has never been known to breach out of the water.  A team sets out to determine if Colossus has learned to breach like other sharks that frequent the area. They used a seal decoy that was towed behind their boat… Needless to say it didn’t take long for Colossus to fly up and breach attacking the decoy.
