Snorkeler Checked Out by a Great White

by

A snorkeler gets more than he bargained for when a great white shows up to check him out. He ended up with some great footage, and an epic story to tell!

A snorkeler got more than he bargained for while filming in Australia. A great white shark bumps into him and then gets up close and personal a few minutes later. While the shark didn’t display any signs of aggression, it was still a nerve-wracking experience for the man behind the camera, evident by the camera-shaking you see near the end. Kudos to this guy for keeping his cool and nabbing some epic footage. For more epic great white footage, check out this seldom-captured video of a shark napping!
