Video Shows Great White Mega Shark Shaking a Diving Cage With Divers Still in It
If you’re the type of person who couldn’t get through "Jaws" or feels queasy at the mere mention of Shark Week, definitely avert your eyes for this one.
A chilling but equally amazing video taken by a diver off the coast of Guadalupe Island, Mexico, shows a great white mega shark biting and rattling a cage with a group of divers inside.
Luckily, no one was hurt in the encounter, though the shark suffered a chipped tooth, according the excursion company's Facebook post of the encounter.
The company, Island Charters, Inc, explained that the shark goes by the name of Bullet, and she’s apparently 17 feet long.
Lasuzzo can be seen in the video celebrating the experience, pumping her fists and throwing a peace sign to the camera. “I hope this story shows people you need to respect great white sharks, but you don’t have to be afraid! So grateful for this experience of a lifetime,” she wrote on her own Facebook page.
Clearly a happy customer, she also wrote a glowing review on Island Charter Inc's Facebook page.
"I will never forget the feeling of being in the cage with three other ladies when beautiful Bullet, the 17 ft female Great White Mega Shark, came to visit our cage," Lasuzzo gushed. "When she started to 'play' with the float on the cage, there was surprisingly no fear from any of us. We were in awe and amazed at the power she had."
The adventurous diver also explained that seeing Bullet was the highlight of the trip because "her size was so much greater than the sharks we had seen the last day and a half."
Great white sharks have been known to occasionally come in close contact with humans, for better or worse. Back in July, a great white was spotted trying to swipe fish away from fishermen off the coast of Massachusetts. Divers in Oahu, in January, also came into contact with one of the largest great whites on record.
