Yikes: Researchers In Deep-Sea Submersible Get Up Close And Personal With Giant Shark

August 1, 2019

This is a video from the researchers aboard the very cramped OceanX deep-sea submersible when they have a run-in with a large female bluntnose sixgill shark. Hey -- it's all fun and games until a shark starts gnawing through oxygen hoses and the rest of your life support system. Apparently bluntnose sixgill sharks can grow up to a very respectable 20-feet. For reference, I topped out at 6'1". My girlfriend is 5'5", but a little over 16-feet long. "You've gotta stop making love to that car." My neighbor doesn't know!

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to Linby, who agrees they must have been nearing Atlantis.

    Bluntnose sixgill. Sounds like a skateboard trick.

    Sharks with frickin lasers!

    That researcher had a whale of a problem on his hands.

    Holy Cannoli that's a big one - and that eye! This is so cool!!

    Pretty sure that was an eye roll. She threw shade at the researchers.
