PR Inside Nature's Giants: Great White Shark on DVD May 8

PBS Distribution



In this episode, veterinary scientist Mark Evans and comparative anatomist Joy Reidenberg travel to South Africa's KwaZulu Natal Coast, where miles of beach protection nets have been put in place to safeguard humans from a deadly threat: the great white shark. Usually the sharks they catch are quite small, but they've just pulled up the body of a giant, weighing in at more than 2,000 pounds and measuring almost 15 feet - this is the largest great white caught in the nets since 2002. It presents an international team of experts with a rare opportunity to explore this hunter's anatomy to find out how it has evolved into one of the most feared predators in the ocean.

Program Synopsis
In this episode, veterinary scientist Mark Evans and comparative anatomist Joy Reidenberg travel to South Africa's KwaZulu Natal Coast, where miles of beach protection nets have been put in place to safeguard humans from a deadly threat: the great white shark. Usually the sharks they catch are quite small, but they've just pulled up the body of a giant, weighing in at more than 2,000 pounds and measuring almost 15 feet - this is the largest great white caught in the nets since 2002. It presents an international team of experts with a rare opportunity to explore this hunter's anatomy to find out how it has evolved into one of the most feared predators in the ocean.

During the dissection, the team uncovers a gigantic organ that has played a key role in the shark becoming one of the biggest fish in the sea. They also examine its intestines to see how great whites digest the huge chunks of food that they swallow and find out how their muscles have turned them into a warm-blooded predator. When they finally dissect the brain of this super predator, they discover whether this fish lives up to its reputation as a killing machine.
Also, Joy uncovers the shark's incredible array of senses, and in a dramatic cage dive encounter, she goes eye-to-eye with a great white. Mark investigates the origins of the shark's infamous killing bite, while white shark biologist Enrico Gennari conducts a bite force test on a live great white to show how powerful its jaws really are. Richard Dawkins tells the surprising story of how the shark's teeth and jaws evolved from its outer skin and gill arches. Using a massive tooth from a prehistoric shark, he estimates that once there were sharks three times bigger than today's largest great whites.

"Inside Nature's Giants" is produced by Windfall Films in association with Channel 4. Additional funding from National Geographic Channels and Wellcome Trust.
