'Shark Week': Sharks love death metal
Sharks feel sound through detectors that extend along the body. This gives them an acute sense of where the sound is coming from and allows them to hone in on their prey.
Using an military grade underwater speaker, researchers are testing their hypothesis that the dense tones of death metal music might just be the lure they need to attract a huge great white.
Researchers tried to using music from the band Darkest Hour.
This method doesn't just attract rebellious teenage sharks. The tones from the music simulate the low frequencies of struggling fish.
First, a 12-footer. Then, a 14-footer. The speaker resonates like a dinner bell.
