Imagine going out at sea, yearning for the calmness of the water and hoping to do some fishing to relax, when something throws off your calm. Something like, say, a great white shark. The monster circles your boat for minutes, but to you it feels like hours! How would you react in such a situation?

A massive great white shark has been filmed circling a boat giving those on board quite a fright. Two fishermen in South Australia reacted to a Great White shark that wandered too close to their boat in a distinctly Aussie way - with mounds of obscene language until it left. Probably it felt insulted or something.

Ray Giullemi and his friend were fishing off the coast of Coffin Bay on January 28, when a great white shark curiously circled their boat. The shark kept poking its nose out of the water and looked like it was inspecting the motor. The two men keep laughing and spurting obscenities at the sight of it. The footage has so much censorship, combined with their language, we can barely make out what they are saying!

Giullemi told Nine News the three-meter shark circled their boat for half an hour and took a bite at the propeller before swimming off.

The mighty great white shark is often mistakenly thought of as the most voracious predator of the seas, and even has a reputation as a ferocious man-eater, something that sadly has been hugely exaggerated by the media. The legendary great white shark is far more fearsome in our imaginations than in reality. As scientific research on these elusive predators increases, their image as mindless killing machines is beginning to fade.
