A Lifetime Of Nope: Great White Shark Breaches Diving Cage With Man Inside

This is a video of a 13-foot great white shark that accidentally breaks into a diving cage and promptly freaks out and thrashes around until it finally manages to escape out the top. Did I mention there was a diver inside at the time? That must have been exciting. Hey -- all the fish shit in the ocean, why not you too?

"What might appear to be an aggressive great white shark trying to attack the cage, this is not the case," wrote the cameraman on YouTube. "These awesome sharks are biting at large chunks of tuna tied to a rope. When a great white shark lunges and bites something, it is temporarily blinded. They also cannot swim backwards. So this shark lunged at the bait, accidentally hit the side of the cage, was most likely confused and not able to swim backwards, it thrust forward and broke the metal rail of the cage."

I love the guy in the video that after asks, "Was there anybody in there?" Because that's the kind of shark-diving expedition I want to go on: the one that doesn't know where its divers are. Okay, now let me just get a headcount before heading back to shore. Let's see we've got *counting heads* one, two, three, four I forgot how many people we had today oh well let's go.

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to DT, who agrees this is why you should only watch sharks in nature documentaries.
