Even though this photo looks like it’s a fantastic piece of graphic design it was actually captured by British filmmaker Euan Rannachan off the coast of Mexico. The 17ft shark was almost posing for the photo which helped the cage diving filmmaker capture this spellbinding shot complete with the shark’s exposed jagged teeth. Rannachan explained to the Daily Mail how the shot came together:

The shark in my image is a female and her name is Squirrel. We'd been with her for a while. We have these people on the boat called shark wranglers and they throw these two-foot chunks of tuna to get the shark close to the surface. The shark wrangles played an important and dangerous part on the acquisition of this amazing picture. A guy named Crazy Luis stood up on the boat to bring the shark to us when we sit on the surface in the shark cage. Sometimes when the wranglers play with the sharks, the sharks get [annoyed] and dive down under the boat and the bait so they can come rocketing up and get it. That's exactly what Squirrel was doing here, she was fed up probably messing around on the surface and dived back down under the boat. It was really deep there but the water clarity was amazing.

This buff monkey was four times stronger than most humans

No, this isn’t a still from a new Planet of the Apes movie, it’s a shot of an incredibly buff chimpanzee that suffers from alopecia - a condition that makes them lose their hair. Even though these animals are incredibly close to humans, sharing between 95 to 98 percent of the same DNA, when it comes to their fitness and muscles there’s no parallel between the two species. But why is this chimpanzee so buff? Researchers have noted that their muscles perform differently because their muscle fibers are closer to the bone than in humans and that makes them more dense than what can be found in humans.

This collection of 60 nature photos is not for the faint of heart, but for those willing to confront the raw power of the natural world, it is a thought-provoking and unforgettable experience. Viewer discretion is advised. Dare to look closer and see nature in a way you've never seen before.
