Shark Video : 1/02

Researchers from Stanford and the Point Reyes Bird Observatory (PRBO) tagged this great white shark along the California coast in Oct. 2000. Dubbed Tipfin, the 14.5-foot male traveled nearly 3,000 miles to Hawaii, recording data on a satellite archival tag, which eventually detached from the animal's body.
