Undersea explorer Fabien Cousteau — grandson of Jacques — has spent hundreds of hours studying sharks from inside the belly of the beast, so to speak.

He used a submarine built to resemble a great white shark in order to achieve close encounters with one of the world's most relentless predators.

Cousteau tells Debbie Elliott about his upcoming CBS documentary, Mind of a Demon.

Fabien Cousteau is following in the footsteps of his legendary grandfather. hide caption
