The grandson of famous oceanographer and filmmaker Jacques Cousteau
believes the best way to learn about sharks is to become one.
Fabien Cousteau, inspired as a child by the comic book Red Rackham's
Treasure, where the main character, Tintin, adventures underwater in a
shark-shaped submarine, decided as an adult to build his own.
"It's the same thought process as Jane Goodall or Diane Fossey. You
don't want to separate yourself from the animal. You want to be part of
the animal's realm," Cousteau said.
Cousteau enlisted the services of renowned Hollywood design engineer
and animatronics expert Eddie Paul to build a great white submarine.
