I can see how it would be scary, but the shark was just curious about him and in no way trying to attack him. Notice that it goes up close to him and then backs off (all the while it's not in an attack position, it's mouth is completely closed). It's simply interested in what this sleek mammal is doing.

It most likely had not eaten anything in some time, and I got the feeling of desperation from the speed and movements of the shark. It also could be underwater electronic equipment that is triggering the Sharks to behave like that. It was either hungry or annoyed, just ask him.

If I were this diver I'd be scared as hell too but that shark wasn't going to harm him at all. I love sharks and it amazes me all the misconceptions that are out there about these beautiful creatures. Just by the way the shark was swimming it was trying to figure out what the diver was and what he was doing. It was swimming fast when it passed him because it was probably scared as well, but wanted to get close enough to see the diver. Nothing about its movements to me seemed aggressive or predatory-like, it was just curious and a little nervous. I'm not an expert, I just love sharks and that's what I took from this video. Also sharks don't see humans as prey, they don't prefer us because we're too boney. That's why when you hear about a shark attack it's always someone either getting bit or losing a limb. I know that's still bad but it's just a case of mistaken identity, and then only species of shark that is extremely aggressive are bull-sharks. They will attack and kill you because they're so territorial but as for other species of sharks you should be safe lol. If anyone does end up in a situation like this just moves your arms and legs around, and if it does try to nip at you punch it in the face. Lol sounds funny but that's really the best way to fend off a shark

Well you did a good job finding a shark.
- spear fishing with probably a lot of blood in the water
- murky water, so shark has to come closer, to see if you're something to eat
- didn't look around, predators behave differently and sharks are generally not interested in other predators

She didn't want to eat you, she was just checking you out.

He didn't nearly eat him, the Shark swam by to inspect his curiosity of what the human was, this kind of panic thinking is why these animals are killed so much, i will give the diver credit for not shooting his harpoon at the Shark, there was no reason to do so and he knew it, if he were in "Danger" he would of.

"It almost ate me" comments like these are the exact reason that sharks are looked at as these monstrous man-eating killing machines. The thing was just curious. Anyone in their right mind would be frightened, but the shark clearly had no intention of eating him. If it had "almost" eaten him he wouldn't have been back on the surface. I don't think I've ever seen a shark "almost" eat something.

definitely a male looks very healthy no scars either from boats or other whites. im guessing approximately 11 ft shark and a juvenile. this guy is almost fully matured prob give another year to reach max length of 13 ft. and he will continue on getting wider after hes reached 13 ft until his body is fully distributed evenlly. guessing that would take 2 years for max width size and one year for max length size

This looks fake, the cuts, the fade-ins of the shark (sure, murky water, but easily super-imposed). Also the intentional looking-cut of the shark just below him all of a sudden.
To another point of shark behavior, they are much like cats. Inherently curious. They have a much more keen sense of smell (becasue water, duh), and humans do not smell or taste good. Shark bites rarely ever occur and most are from accidental brushes from the teeth, confusion from a surf board, abnormally territorial shark or an injured/sickly hungry shark.
Sharks are very fearful and skiddish creatures. The sound of your respirator/BCU alone usually will scare them off. In the event that you are out in a territory where shark is not used to humans, they are curious, will swim by you a few times to check you out, even boop you with their noise and then swim away. It's kinda cute.
The best thing to do when you see a shark is not to panic, just observe and maybe make a noise if he/she decides to get too close for your comfort.
The chance of you getting bitten by a shark is lower than you getting struck by lighting when you surface. You even have a much higher chance of getting run over by another boat, depending on where you are diving.

South African waters are very well known for their white shark population, so its no surprise one got the jump on the diver (that said, I still had a little jolt, lol). Lucky it didn't take a bite out him before he noticed it coming from his blind spot. I make it a point to only swimming in clear waters if I ever go to the ocean.
