Dude Finds HUGE Great White Stuck In Shallow Water, Gets WAAAYYYYY Too Close For Comfort
An enormous great white shark found itself trapped in shallow water after the tide went out, and one man with balls of steel decided to get really close to that shark. This all went down in a shallow water bay on the Sea of Cortez. As you can clearly see, this is one GIGANTIC great white shark so when the tide went out and the water level plummeted to just a few feet the shark was no longer able to leave the bay because it was more or less stuck on the bottom.
The video above contains some graphic language, and as one of the brothers in the video attempted to get close to the enormous 14-foot great white shark he stepped on a stingray and was stung (you can see that around the 7:20 mark of the video).
On the one hand, that white shark was already under a great deal of stress and getting that close to the shark could’ve sent it off the ledge. On the other hand, how many times in life are you ever going to be within just a few feet of a wild great white shark? I think these gents made the right call to get out there and film it.
If you’re wondering about the propeller injuries on the shark’s fin, so was I. Someone addressed it in the comments of the YouTube video and said a marine biologist who saw the video said that a shark that size would likely never be killed by injuries like that from a boat’s propeller, that they weren’t nearly severe enough. So I guess we can all sleep soundly knowing that shark is out there swimming around…hooray….
