Great Whites stalk their prey just like serial killers.

And, from the Office of the Special Rapporteur for the Obvious:

"There's a big difference between great white sharks and serial killers and
it comes down to that old gumshoe standard: motive. The great whites attack to
eat and survive, not for thrills. And great whites are majestic creatures that
should be saved, Hammerschlag said."

Just in case anyone thought serial killers were majestic creatures that should be saved?

and this gem:

"Other animals, such as lions, also reveal strategies in their hunting,
Hammerschlag said. Land animals have been observed more easily from the air or elsewhere on the ground."
