RESEARCHERS PERFORM AN AUTOPSY ON A GREAT WHITE SHARK.
Researchers Dr Leonard Compangnio and Stephen Swanson perform an
autopsy on a 3.5 meter long female Great White Shark found in fishing
nets off the coastal town of Mossel bay, July 17, 2001. The Great
White, despite having an often unjustified reputation as a "maneater",
is a protected species in South Africa and occupies a unique position
at the top of the marine food chain.
