Massive numbers of sharks engage in a feeding frenzy - Great Whites involved too!

How about that great white that swims towards shore, kicks up a bunch of sand as a "smoke scree" and then storms the school of fish? What an awesome display of intelligence from a creature that is supposedly a "reactive" animal.

When I see films of animals solving unique problems like this "on the fly" so to speak, or more accurately, "in the swim," it makes me believe that every living thing has some degree of self awareness.

Dolphins do the same thing - they work in packs to kick up sand in a ring around their prey, and then just open their mouths as the fish try and jump out. Amazing.
