    When hunting schooling fish, thresher sharks are known to “slap” the water, herding and stunning prey.  The elongated tail is used to swat smaller fish, stunning them before feeding.  Also, Thresher sharks are one of the few shark species known to jump fully out of the water making turns like dolphins, this behavior is called breaching.
