For some of us however adrenaline seem to be one of our favorite things and we usually go out of our way to seek for it. The main issue here is that sharks are not that keen to anyone else coming to their territories unless its a fish which they enjoy for breakfast.

A magnificent great white shark leaps from the water to take a chunk out of a would-be seal.These amazing full breaches were conceived using a foam rubber seal decoy – which is dragged behind a shark cage diving boat, as a way of enticing the hungry predator. Shot by filmmakers Mark van Coller and Morne Hardenberg in Cape Town, between June and August of 2013 and 2014, the footage demonstrates the frightening power and agility of the iconic animal. But achieving such incredible shots is only possible if the conditions are right.

The powerful way of their movement when they hunt, the scary look of their appearance, let alone how plain scary they look. Ether way, they cant get you through the screen, so go ahead and take a look at this video as it will show you how dangerous sharks can really be.
