A nature photographer captured the moment a thresher shark breached the water in the Strait of Canso, Nova Scotia, Canada, and leaped into the air.
D’Entremont told Storyful that he believed a sea lamprey had attached itself to the shark causing it lunge out of the water. Sea lamprey are a parasitic jawless vertebrae native to the northern hemisphere. They are known to attack and parasitize sharks for the high level of urea in their blood.
