Shark attack caught on camera

Most divers and surfers will tell you not to worry about shark attacks. As an instructor once told me, when I was learning to surf in Australia: “Get out there you pussy, sharks eat fish!”.

But as this video shows, you can never predict nature’s creatures and this reef shark certainly doesn’t seem too interested in the fish. Even when the diver drops his bucket, the shark returns to the diver. I know he escapes unharmed but I don’t like to guess what might have happened had he dropped his spear. This fish is extremely aggressive and was far from easily deterred. Anyway, enjoy the video!

Be safe!
