South Africa is home to some big scary sharks. These tourists were seeing a great white close up when it decided to try and bust into the cage and take a bite of them. Luckily the bars bent and didn’t break!
This huge Hammerhead shark follows these kayakers for 2 miles off the coast of South Florida, continuously nudging their kayaks.

Galapagos Islands is home to many species. One of the most remarkable is the Hammerhead Shark which is currently classified as an endangered species in the IUCN red list. Their migrations can be witnessed in such numbers that are hard to estimate and are truly breath taking.

At least 100 sharks took part in the wild feeding frenzy right on the shoreline at Cape Lookout in North Carolina. For more than five minutes the sharks were swimming in and out of the surf, and some became beached in the fury!

This guy couldn’t land the shark on the rocks, so he jumped into the water to grab the shark and took it up to the beach where unhooked it, and released it back in the ocean. This guy is someone I want to be mates with.

A reputable source says Discovery Channel employees were “stoned” when they came up with Shark Week; however, a former Shark Week executive producer claims they were only “lightly” inebriated. Either way, there was definitely drinking and probably a few spirited rants during the conception of Shark Week. After the idea was brought up, it was written on a cocktail napkin and then the world became a better place.
With fake documentaries about “Megalodon” and “Submarine,” the Discovery Channel has turned Shark Week into a source of misinformation about sharks. But it wasn’t always like this. Discovery also owns Animal Planet which shows programs like “Finding Bigfoot.” So this isn’t that surprising, just sad.
The cameraman and a friend were busy enjoying the delights of the deep when the largest fish on the planet got a little too close for comfort. Whale sharks only eat plankton and very small fish but the diver, after being warned by his friend, was understandably terrified and let out a scream when he saw the opened-jawed animal coming straight for him.
For a group of Florida divers, every week is Shark Week. Mickey Smith and Robert “Cameron” Nimmo are featured this week in a short GoPro video titled, “Petting a tiger shark.” The footage is incredible, revealing a surreal scene beyond Jupiter, involving a large tiger shark moving gracefully through azure waters as it approaches the divers to be fed and gently touched.
