Diver Films Massive Great White Shark Lunging For A Meal
A diver has presumably crapped in his wet suit after filming a huge great white shark lunging for a meal mere metres in front of him.
Thomas Olsen captured the moment the behemoth shark swooped up in pursuit of a meal, its muscular body rippling in the water and its cavernous mouth opened wide, bearing its razor sharp teeth.
As if the spectacle wasn't wet suit-soilingly terrifying enough, the gigantic shark then dived down towards Mr Olsen and locked gaze with the intrepid diver.
However, while there is no doubt that Mr Olsen is courageous, it's worth pointing out that he filmed the massive shark from the relative safety of a cage; still, there's no chance you'd be getting me in one of those.
The impressive footage was shared on Facebook by non-profit organisation, Ocean Planet Soul, with the caption: "WOOHOOOOO! Look at the musculature of this most beautiful creature. White shark power!"
The vid has been viewed more than 116,000 times and Ocean Planet Soul's enthusiasm about the footage was reflected in the comments too.
One person said: "Holy crickets that is one big shark!!! Awesome shot!! Well done!!"
Another added: "Wow, I think this is just beautiful!!"
While another person seemingly agreed that was a soil you wet suit situation.
"This scared the crap out of me," he said.
However, you don't have to agree to submerge yourself in a cage in the middle of the ocean to come face-to-face with a great white shark - as a group of fishermen in the US found out in June.
The men were fishing about 30 miles off the coast of Manasquan Inlet, New Jersey, when they were paid a visit by a massive shark, more than half the size of their boat.
In a video taken from the boat, the grey figure can be seen lurking ominously below the water, edging closer and closer. As the calm among the fishermen rapidly evaporates, the shark then surges above the water and rips the bait from the vessel, Jaws-style.
Mr Crilly - who is the owner of the 31-foot boat, Big Nutz Required II - said he and his pals were 'amazed'.
Speaking to Asbury Park Press, he said: "We've fished for sharks a lot and never seen anything like that. We were amazed by how big it was.
"It was harder to guess the weight because we had nothing to compare it to, but it was probably about 2,000 pounds."
