Their new underwater vessels include a mobile cage called the W.A.S.P (Water Armour Shark Protection) that enables divers to walk along the ocean floor while filming sharks, although being that close to the predators does not look to be a comfortable experience.

New footage has emerged of a 20-foot-long great white shark named ‘Deep Blue’ which is believed to be the largest of its kind in the world. The footage was captured by shark researcher Mauricio Hoyos Padilla off Mexico’s Guadalupe Island in 2013, but wasn’t released until now because he had only recently found the recording on his computer. The video shows the enormous apex predator swimming near researchers in steel cages, with one bold enough to be swimming outside the protection of the protective metal bars.
Dustin McCaslin flew his drone above Grover Beach in San Luis Obispo County, California, and found a shark swimming within feet of unsuspecting surfers. “McCaslin said he took the footage to a lifeguard, who confirmed it looked “very sharky” and was likely around 10 feet long. The lifeguard followed protocol and went out to investigate, McCaslin said.” This has been your friendly reminder of the day to never go in a body of water unless you’re forced by gun point, not even a bath tub.

Whale sharks are being slaughtered: That’s the shocking news from a report issued by WildLifeRisk, a nongovernmental organization. A three-year investigation provides evidence that a factory in southeastern China is cutting up about 600 of the 21-ton (19-tonne) fish a year. It’s illegal—whale sharks are a protected species under international law. But it’s easy to understand why: A single carcass is worth about $30,000. The sick bastards could at least cut the head off first.
