Great white sharks are like the grizzly bears of the sea. What may start as a peaceful and beautiful encounter can go completely south in a split second. Wild animals must ALWAYS be treated with respect and caution.
Diving off the Virginia capes, we would lie on the bottom and watch sand tigers sleep, one of the few sharks that do not require motion for oxygen intake. Fierce looking, but usually they're not aggressive if approached carefully. By Sooper DeviantArt.
