Divers Become Completely Surrounded By Bull Sharks

This video of a diver off the coast of Fiji surrounded by bull sharks manages to be both soothing and kind of a nail biter at the same time. Soothing, insofar as it shows lovely footage of colorful fish (and the aforementioned bull sharks) swimming by gracefully, flowing with ease along the ocean’s currents. And kind of a nail biter, because—OMG! Sharks! Bull sharks! SO CLOSE to these divers! While sharks in general tend not to view humans as food, bull sharks are among the more aggressive species of sharks (although they still take a back seat to their formidable cousin, the Great White). So it’s best not to tangle with them unless absolutely necessary, and we definitely don’t recommend that anybody watching this video go off to grab his own camera and scuba gear and head off to search for a close encounter with sharks of his own. It should also be noted that bull sharks can live in both salty and fresh water, or in brackish waters, and they can even swim up rivers. Bull sharks have been found in the Mississippi River as far north as Illinois. We’re guessing that the Illinois residents who discovered said bull sharks were surprised…to say the least. And bull sharks are also responsible for the majority of near-shore shark attacks on humans. So, again—do NOT go off looking for bull sharks on your own! Still, this video is lovely to see, and it’s hard not to get caught up in the soothing sounds of water flowing and the serene sights of ocean life going by as you watch it. It’s also surprising—not to mention joy inspiring—to see how calmly these fearsome ocean predators glide right alongside the variety of smaller fish, who they could undoubtedly snap up with a single bite of their massive jaws, if they were so minded. We’ve found that having this particular video playing in the background while we work is almost as good—and nearly as calming—as having an aquarium tank set up in our office, a dream we still hope will become a reality one day!. So if you haven’t hit the Play button yet, now’s a good time to do so. And get ready to hit the Share button as well, because somewhere out there is a shark loving friend who you just KNOW is going to love watching this one! So sit back, and enjoy the ride.

Great White Shark Rams Into Diver Cage29s

Great White Shark Rams Into Diver Cage

A massive great white shark curiously sticks its nose inside this diver's cage. Check out how big that thing is! Shark week is something a lot of people look forward to during their time off from work. Perhaps it is the thrill of seeing a shark rip a prey apart with its huge jaws lined with rows of razor-sharp teeth. Most people would prefer to stay at home and watch the chaos and destruction unfold from the safety of their lounge chairs. Nothing will ever beat reality, however, and as this video shows, the real danger is only a few thin metals bars away. Sharks are a very curious creature most of the time, millions of years of evolution have evolved them into giant eating machines. However, they still prefer to know what they are eating before attacking. Shark attacks only count for around 6 fatalities per year worldwide and approximately only 100 unprovoked attacks leaving injury or equipment/property damage. While it's still technically safer to be in the ocean with sharks than to drive a car. Movies like Jaws has instilled a primal fear in most people, which is still present today. The fear of swimming in a dark blue ocean where you're not only at the mercy of water and waves but also to all the animals living in the water below that you cannot see. A small group of divers is submerged in a cage underwater in an attempt to view these large majestic creatures up close and personal. The camera swings left to right tracking a great white as it contemplates if the cage is something it is able to push through. The shark gives the cage a nudge to see if it can be moved out of the way. The divers inside the cage can be seen ducking down low to avoid the shark as much as possible. One diver has his hand near the edge of the cage when the great white turns to leave and he then ducks down low to avoid the curious great whites eyes. The show is then soon over for these adrenaline junkies as the great white swims away, a visible sigh of relief is shown across the divers' faces. The camera follows the great white shark as it slowly disappears back into the great blue sea. A flurry of smaller fish and nurse sharks can then be seen darting around in a panicked motion as they all could have fallen prey to the massive great whites appetite. Luckily for the divers, the cage was strong enough to withstand the great whites weight pushing up against it. Giving them the best view in the house for their own personal Shark Week. Perhaps this isn't something for the faint of heart, but the thrill of seeing such a creature up close and personal would be a once in a lifetime event for most people. Would this be something you would like to try on your next holiday, or is simply sightseeing as risky as you want to be? The raw power behind a great white shark is nothing to be sneezed at, they have been known bite chunks of out yachts and sink inflatable dinghy's.

Curious Shark Bites On Metal Cage To Check What It’s Made Of45s

Curious Shark Bites On Metal Cage To Check What It’s Made Of

“Oh, look, two seals in a bento box. Must be lunch time! These two-leggers really do like me. Hey, you up in the boat! You forgot to unlock my lunch box!” And this is why the great white shark is smiling. This shark was brought up in the school of hard knocks, as is evidenced by the serious scars on its back. The only question is whether it is male or female. Female sharks of breeding age will bear scars in the shoulder area, because male sharks bite into the female in order to latch on during mating. On the other hand, appendages on its ventral side look like they may be claspers, which are a feature of male shark anatomy. I guess we won’t need to worry about its gender to be thrilled by this video. One curious thing about this shark is it doesn’t test the metal bars with an exploratory bite. It opens its mouth, but then backs off just as its lips meet the metal bars. This suggests that the shark is conditioned to the presence of shark cages, and why bite into one when it already knows what they taste like? In some weird way, it could be that the shark is actually socializing with the divers. Now, we don’t have any delusions of tame acceptance, or that the trapped humans can look into its eyes and reason with it. There are just some creatures that we don’t bother playing Jedi mind tricks with, rattlesnakes are one, and man eating sharks are another. Almost as interesting are the large fish swimming alongside the shark. We are looking at a pelagic zone, which means that fish live and swim in the deep water column, rather than in a shallow reef area. Unlike the reef, pelagic fish such as cobia, tuna, amberjack, dolphin (mahi mahi) and the like must perpetually swim or risk to be eaten. A pelagic fish at rest is a pelagic fish no more. We can be pretty sure each fish is well aware of the whereabouts of the other fish. The smaller fish have speed and maneuverability on their side. The shark, for its part, only needs one good opportunity to sneak up on a blubbery meal like a seal or sometimes dead whale to sustain itself for a month or more. This shark is probably not even interested in the other fish which, even though they are laden with protein, don’t have very much stored energy in the way of fat. What kind of pain tolerance must these creatures have to endure such horrific bites? But these creatures are literally salting every wound. Ouch, that must have stung. Well, as they say, what doesn’t kill you only makes you stronger. This big fella (or gal) looks strong. Don’t divers ever worry about the shark being able to stick its snout far enough between the wide spaces of a shark cage to bite them? The cage itself looks like it’s so narrow there’s not much room to back away. Imagine two sharks strategizing, one coming at you from the front, the other coming at you from behind! Would you ever dare to have such close encounter with sharks and risk to be only inches away? There is always the slightest possibility that the beast might snitch you and have you for dinner. Fortunately, the ignorant shark in this video wasn’t too interested in the divers, it was only curious to check what material the cage is made of. Surprising!

Epic Underwater Selfie With Great White Shark17s

Epic Underwater Selfie With Great White Shark

This diver manages to get an awesome selfie with a massive Great White passing by in the background. How cool is that? Nowadays taking selfies is already a common passion, nay - a new obsession that has taken humanity like a storm! People do selfies literally everywhere, in all accessible and inaccessible places, the second ones being far more appealing as they get the "wows" and "no ways" on all social media platforms. In the end, we have heard the old adage so many times: a picture says a thousand words. Now, imagine what adventure, what hair-raising thrill and excitement it would be if you want to take a selfie with nothing less but a Great White Shak. Yep, you read well, this is the protagonist everyone runs away from in movies (Jaw's music running in the background, can't you hear it?) and our crazily, madly, insanely brave diver just went into the great depths of the sea to capture a selfie with this prehistoric monster s! Yes, of course, he is in a cage, but for our mega predator, weighing 1.5 tons and a length of 5 meters with murderous 5-centimeter teeth-daggers, cages are nothing but trinkets to toss around like a puppy tosses a fluffy keychain pendant. Look at the shark turning ominous circles around the cage. At one short moment, it really appears to grin for a selfie - just like in the cartoons, where ocean predators are posing to create these horrific images. It is very difficult to get this chance to purposefully (and safely) get face to face with the most dangerous and ancient predator of the planet, and even more difficult than it may seem at first glance, to make photos and videos in its habitat. But after the moment of shock and adrenaline overload passes you realize that these selfies are unique and unique! Our underwater hero shot a video-selfie with a Great White Shark. Surely, anyone would take him for a madman, but in his own way, he tries to convey his idea to people. After all, it is the social media sphere that attracts the most attention and it is to it that it addresses. He wants to tell us all to live our lives to the fullest and "carpe diem". For those of you who are still gripped in fear of sharks, relax, they are not always so scary. To prove you this, we attached another video on the link here which shows a seal chases down Great White Shark off the coast of a vay . A mere seal. You know, seals are usually supper for sharks. Watch! This tough marine mammal got to be nicknamed after one of Hollywood’s most famous martial artists, because he was not having it from his natural enemy! The crew on a cage-diving boat caught on camera what can only be described as a “once in a lifetime experience", when they witnessed a seal chase down a Great White Shark off the coast of Mossel Bay in South Africa in early October. “We're going to call him Chuck Norris!" says one of the men on the boat, as he points his camera towards the water, which follows the shark close by. The aquatic predator doesn’t seem all too interested with the pray at its heels. 'Seal chasing a shark, never thought I'd see the day,' the man filming adds. Watching the bizarre encounter, the crew members joke that maybe sharks in Mossel Bay are actually vegetarians, because why would a shark “run away’ from a nice, plump seal that is right there, basically serving itself on a platter. “Juicy seal around you and these sharks aren't even interested." What do you think about this video? Make sure you tell us more in the comments down below. If you like what you see, don’t forget to share it with others who might like it as well. It just might be the highlight of their day! Enjoy!

Great White Shark Swims To The Surface With Great Speed19s

Great White Shark Swims To The Surface With Great Speed

The beauty of the great white shark together with their elegant and fierce nature has lured many people into the ocean to safely observe these creatures in their natural habitat. For such a close encounter, shark enthusiasts may opt for cage diving such as the one shown in this video which offers tourists the opportunity to come face to face with the great whites while still remaining out of any danger. Here, we can see a group of people safely located inside a shark-proof cage observing and admiring the great white sharks swimming around them. As seen, the sharks are incredibly large and extremely fast and can swim at astonishing speeds, appearing out of nowhere and surprising and thrilling observes. The great white sharks are, therefore, characterized by their great size, a strong sense of smell, spectacular speed and an intelligent and cunning nature. However, though they can become aggressive if they feel threatened in their territory, humans are not their common prey but rather other smaller fish. Therefore, despite being surrounded by such an intimidating creature, the observers in these scenarios are all safe. Such shark-proof cages have been in use for many years in many different parts of the world. They are used for various reasons including deep sea explorations, scientific research, behavior observation as well as underwater photography, filming and recreational activity. The latter, more commercial, side of it has brought in many tourists and shark lovers who are in search of an adventurous activity that is guaranteed to create a unique and memorable experience . Though it might appear rather unnerving, shark cage diving is a safe activity as the cages that are used are extremely secure and are specially built to endure any potential attacks from sharks. They will sustain any bashing in or biting and will keep the observers safe for the entirety of the underwater visit. They are also securely connected to the boat above it and are further equipped with strong metal lids at the top and bottom of the cage. Most importantly, an expert acting as a tour guide is always present and will ensure comfort and provide any needed information to make certain that the observes are all well prepared for this incredible dive. Additionally, they will also be provided with any required equipment and will carefully be instructed on what to do. Because of this, cage diving is suited for both experienced as well as novice divers as it does not require any previous diving experience. However, it might be better for beginners to start slowly and opt for cage diving closer to the surface rather than deeper water. This will provide further comfort and it may help eliminate any potential nervousness. Then, if all requirements are met, this will ultimately create an exhilarating experience unlike any other. It will also make for an amazing story that is guaranteed to captivate any listener especially if there is footage of it, such as this video which is enough to thrill any viewer.

Surprisingly Friendly Shark Enjoys Swimming With Sea Lions2m34s

Surprisingly Friendly Shark Enjoys Swimming With Sea Lions

Any creature unlucky enough to find itself in the gob of a great white is in for a nasty shock. Because this marine beast’s mouth is equipped with a set of 300 sharp, triangular teeth arranged in up to seven rows. However, a 16' Great White shark named "Bite Face" encounters a sea lion at Guadalupe Island. Despite her fierce reputation as a mindless killer, this shark doesn't seem interested in attacking the sea lion. Whilst this super swimmer is the largest predatory fish on our planet, she is not in a mood for killing this time. We know that these sea creatures count on the element of surprise as they hunt, and whenever they see a seal at the surface of the water, sharks will often position themselves underneath the seal. However, the shark in this video is unlike that. She only swims freely in circles and enjoys the feeling of floating in the ocean. It lookes like she is not into any predatory games today, so she just moves slowly in the water. Whenever this great white smells a possible victim, she uses her tail as a propeller, swims upward at a fast sprint, bursts out of the water in a leap called a breach, and falls back into the water with the seal in her mouth. Nevertheless, this friendly shark doesn’t do anything of this. And thanks to her, maybe this is the first time we see a shark not taking interest in her prey. Don’t worry falks - while many think of these beasts as fearsome man-eaters, humans aren’t, in fact, on the great white’s menu. Phew! There are around 5-10 attacks a year and rather than preying on humans to eat them, the sharks are instead taking a ‘sample bite’ out of curiosity, before swimming off.
