Has a newborn great white shark been captured on film?


A YouTuber known as TheMalibuArtist may have provided valuable insight into the birth of great white sharks. Carlos Gauna, who has gained fame for his drone footage of sharks, captured footage of a small, white shark with flaking skin near Santa Barbara, California. Shark researcher Phil Sternes believes this could be a newborn shark based on its rounded fins and the white layer on its body, which could be evidence of a mucus-like substance found on newborn sharks. However, other marine biologists caution that there could be alternative explanations for the white layer and more evidence is needed to confirm the finding. Carlos hopes to continue using his drone to capture footage of a great white shark being born.
