Shark Publicist William Winram sets out to debunk sharks’ bad reputation (slideshow)
Great white shark jumps from sea into research boat, becoming trapped on deck for more than an hour.
Enrico Gennari, [an expert on great white sharks], said it was the first time he had heard of a great white shark jumping onto a research vessel. He estimated the predator would have had to have leapt about three meters out of the water to be able to land on the boat. A smaller vessel would have capsized, he said.
