Huge Six Metre Shark Filmed Hunting Two Men In A Boat

There seems to have been loads of shark action around the world lately, but this one is probably the creepiest.

While out on the boat with his fishing pal, Grayden Sharpe noticed a great white shark pop up near their boat.

The pair were 30km off the southwestern tip of Western Australia when they noticed the massive creature - the shark was bigger than their boat and surfaced a couple of metres away.

It continued to stalk Grayden, and his girlfriend's father Jason Atwell, circling the boat three or four times as the men started to reel in their catches.

The men said the shark must have been at least six metres long, as it looked bigger then their boat, which measures in at 5.8 metres.

Although the huge animal didn't touch the boat, the fishermen said that they feared it could have knocked it over.

Speaking to Perth Now, Grayden said: "I'd caught a dhufish and as soon as we reeled it in we took off and moved spots.

"We ended up having to put the dhufish back in the water and about 30 seconds after we did the shark was back and circling around the boat again. So we called it and left."

In true Aussie style, Grayden was pretty chill about the whole thing.

He added: "We were a little scared because of how far away we were from shore and because of how big it was.

"Everything went so quick, it was only circling the boat for about two to three minutes... I was like, 'holy s***' and I was also thinking I had to get it on camera."

And over in the States, there have also been sightings of huge sharks over recent weeks.

Scientists have been tracking a group of great white sharks, which have been seen hunting in the waters off the east coast of the US.

The biggest one they have ever tracked is called Luna - she weighs over 150st and is 15ft long.

Her tracker sent out an alert on Monday near the Charleston Bump - an underwater rock formation 90m southeast of Charleston, South Carolina.

Researcher group OCEARCH has shown the predators are being tracked near North and South Carolina. The scientists have been catching them and attaching trackers to the animals to monitor their behaviour.
