The blubber-rich carcass of a Southern Right Whale (Eubalaena australis) is perfect food to keep this large Great White Shark (Carcharodon carcharias) fuelled and active for the winter months ahead. Near Seal Island, False Bay, South Africa.

This is a mindblowing photo, Ken. But the copyright belongs to someone else. Kindly tag the original photographer.

Hi Sanjeev, copyright belongs to Dana Allen, who kindly allowed me to publish his photo on ”Focusing on Wildlife”.

Hi Dana. Great luck being there at the right time and with such good light etc! Just wanted to let you know you got the whale species wrong. It’s a rorqual, definitely no S. Right Whale, possibly a Humpback.
