'Shark Week': Monster Mako: World's Fastest Shark Chases Bait


With jackfish bait in tow, these researchers are out to test the mako shark's hunting abilities at top speed. Jackfish often school near the surface, so a lone jackfish might be the perfect target for a hungry mako. It doesn't take long for the team's fish tracker technology to detect something that might just be what they're looking for.

The speed and power with which this monster mako strikes the bait is truly impressive at these speeds.
