British Tourists Capture Amazing Pictures Of Great White Shark

British Tourists Capture Amazing Pictures Of Great White Shark

It seems that despite everything Jaws and Deep Blue Sea have taught us, people still love fucking about with sharks. Of course they're films, but that shit's scary. Just leave the toothy fuckers to the ocean.

With that being said, a group of British tourists ended up pissing about with a 13-foot-long, 1,700-pounder breaching the water to get a chomp of a decoy seal.

"In his jaws is the lure the crew use to bring them towards the boat, which is intended to be reeled out of the way before this exact scenario occurs," geographic information system officer Joseph Butler said.

"Contrary to what a lot of people think when they look at this, the animal is not hooked or captured in any way. He has just managed to clasp the other end of the rope between his teeth.

The idea of getting these incredible pictures was to break the misconception that sharks are thirsty for human blood.

"It is frequently found as a foreign concept when I explain that the sharks were largely uninterested in us, and that they are a lot more vulnerable than first thought," 23-year-old Joseph said. "What I love most about this kind of photography is breaking down people's preconceptions about nature."

"For instance, when people are often shocked that one would willingly get in the ocean with great whites, with or without safety equipment," he continued.

"Although a 13ft-long, 1,700lb shark sounds like an unstoppable force of rage, they are in fact largely being decimated by humankind with our own selfishness and brutality."
