This Is Exactly Why Sharks Are the Scariest Animals on Earth

Publish date:

In 2013 a team from the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution took a specially equipped REMUS "SharkCam" underwater vehicle to Guadalupe Island in Mexico. Their intention was to capture footage of Great White Sharks in the wild, but what they actually captured was far more than they bargained for.

From out of nowhere a shark appears, lurking in the distance with its huge body visible. It only disappears for a moment before it speeds back up out of the darkness with its mouth wide open and bites the underwater vehicle. We get to see the impressive jaws and teeth of this rarely seen animal, and it scares the hell out of us. You can imagine from this footage what it might be like to be on the receiving end of a hungry Great White Shark.

We will be sticking to dry land for a while.
