who in their right fucking mind pets a GREAT WHITE??

I was there at Christmas a couple years ago for about 10 days. Had a great time snorkeling but never saw anything quite like that.

I think that shark would look at your spear and just smile
knowing it can use it as a toothpick.

That picture reminds of the grizzly freak who thought he could live with bears and be their little buddy. People think they have some kind of connection with an animal, and a mutual understanding that they won't hurt each other. Just ask Roy Horn.

Incredibly naive.

They've got those spear attachments that set off a firearm cartridge when you punch them against the big fishy. Seen them in everything from 9mm up to 50bmg. Damn that would be loud in the water.

EDIT: They're called bangsticks.

That is a very BIG shark, Darwin must have napping today.

The Great Whites are occasionally seen in the Islands, due to Hawaiian Monk seals. I saw a approx 12 foot Tiger shark from shore going through the middle of a wave face up on the North Shore of Oahu in 93.

Do you mean the chance of getting hit by lightning while acting like an ordinary member of society, or when you cover yourself in tin foil, hold an umbrella and dance on the highest hill of a golf course during a violent thunderstorm?

Man that's spooky when I think about how much time I spent over 3 years in the water of the North Shore. That is a big Great White!

I never seen a big shark the whole time I was there. I thought I saw a big fin one time while I was bobbing along like a big piece of bait offshore of Wiamea Bay. It turned out to be a big Sea Turtle.

We used to fish in Pearl Harbor and would catch little 2 foot long Hammerheads.

One of the coolest things I've evr done is swim with a whale shark in the GHulf of Aden while on deployment to Djibouti. I would not however, get in the water with one of those cruising around. Can someone get a Darwin award ready?

That guy is perfectly safe. It is well known throughout the diving community here in FL that sharks cannot see you when you are wearing camoflague dive skins.

Great whites are cool, but I'll be damned if I get into the water with one. Those guys who think they are so in tune with nature so much that they think they can commune with these big beasts just annoy the hell out of me. Just flip the TV over to the Discovery Channel at any given moment and you'll see these freaks. It must be pleasing to the sharks knowing that at any given moment they could tear these guys in two just for the hell of it.

Last June I was snorkeling by myself off a beach on Maui and thought heard someone yelling. It was a snorkeler about 30 yards inshore from me, as the strap from my mask was over my ear I couldn't hear to well. I thought he was yelling "Shark....Shark...Shark" but after swimming about 15 yards towards the beach I realized he was yelling for his son Mark. I didn't know I could swim that fast!

While at the Maui Ocean Discovery Center we listened to a biologist talk about sharks. He told us of how sharks are extremely adaptive to their environments and methods of hunting. Apparently great white sharks have learned that sea kayaks contain tasty little human snacks as they occasionally find empty kayaks with tooth marks or damage. Stay in the pool!

If I were in the water and saw that I'd be swimming in a school of brown trout.
Link Posted: 1/11/2006 7:28:46 AM EDT
Whats up with dudes wetsuit???

It looks like it has horizontal blue and grey tiger stripes. Never seen any like that before.

Seems like it may blend into the water make it harder for sharks to see you clearly?

This is the results of a much smaller great white. While sharks dont
usually eat humans it is of little consolation to know that after you have
been hit.


Link Posted: 1/11/2006 7:47:27 AM EDT
I remain in enviroments where humans are at the top of the food chain.
I admit it...sharks scare me!
Friggin movie Jaws came out when I was in high school.
5 years ago I was beach camping on South Padre Island here in beautiful South Texas and decided after several adult beverages to take a moonlit swim.
It was great, full moon, warm water.....about 100 yards out the damn Jaws theme popped into my head.
I did a Jesus thing and RAN out of the gulf of Mexico.That is a great picture.
Link Posted: 1/11/2006 7:48:22 AM EDT
It's rare as hell for a White Shark to hang around in warm water like that, not to mention the description of the shark almost being lethargic. The guy was foolish to get into the water with it.

Nature is unpredictable, remember the Jersey Maneater in 1916?

The guy so eager to jump in the water might want to rethink his approach.....not real bright. An incredible experience though, I have to admit...it would be a thrill to pull that off and live to tell about it.
