The diver who left his underwater cage to prove it says that Great white sharks are NOT dangerous.
The video shows divers looking at the mouth of a giant 18-foot-long female shark known as JAWS. The shark’s sharp teeth are visible, giving her a familiar grin. The divers were close but still safe from the shark.
Daniel Botelho, a deep-sea snapper, has spent 24 hours diving without a cage with huge great white sharks, which can weigh up to half a ton. Surprisingly, he’s never been bitten, and he’s a brave photographer!
“Daniel said that the movie Jaws caused an exaggerated response, which made people not understand sharks properly.”
“They are definitely predators, and most of them attack by surprise, but they don’t kill people.”
I spent 24 hours in the water, recorded by someone, and no shark came close to me because they didn’t see me as a snack.
In simpler words: “I used my pictures to demonstrate that it’s safe to go diving with great white sharks.”
A 31-year-old man from Brazil named Daniel recorded a video of a heart attack while visiting a faraway island near Mexico.
The photographer who won awards for taking pictures of nature said that even though great white sharks are powerful hunters, they usually don’t see humans as their food.
He said that to dive safely with the famous shark, you should stay calm, keep looking at the shark, and stay still even if it comes very close to you.
Ocean scientists say that great white sharks are at risk of harm or danger.
We don’t know exactly how many of them there are, but they can live up to 30 years in warm waters. They’ve been seen as far north as the Mediterranean and as far south as the Australian coast.
British experts said that last year they thought great white sharks might sometimes come to UK waters.
Around the world, there are between five and ten reported shark attacks each year.
