Amazing video shot off the Palm Beaches by Dr. Stephen Kajiura, Ph.D. as a school of blacktip sharks swim together.

Dr. Kajiura says the sharks are swimming in a synchronized fashion and these videos shot by planes and drones will help FAU Marine Biology students better understand shark movements.

Dr. Kajiura tells WFLA roughly 150 sharks are shown in the 20 second clip with many more schools not far behind as these schools of sharks are enjoying the warmer weather as they wait to migrate back north. 

And although these schools of sharks are very close to the beach, Dr.Kajiura says people have little to fear because they are generally skittish and avoid humans.
