Great white zeroes in on surfer off shark attack hotspot
Check this out never threatening at all, makes you wonder how often sharks check out surfers!

A shark-detecting drone has revealed a great white predator swam menacingly close to a surfer off a stretch off the 'shark attack capital' of Australia.

Martin Hendersonvery true Al McGlashan, that shark was checking out the surfer but once it realised what it was - it turned away. Great whites and makos have a higher then water body temperature and need a lot of high energy foods - for them that means fat and oil. Humans do not have enough fat for them so for one to eat a human is unusual. They may give an exploratory bite to see what you are, which could probably kill you, or rub against you (taste buds in their skin) which, if hard enough, can just about cut off a limb if done with a fin. In short, very few GW attacks are to actually eat a human.

Michael WattsWhen the first surfer took off, it seemed to trigger the shark's aggression. Shark reacts to a possible meal fleeing. The second bloke was in the zone as the shark chased the first bloke. A sudden burst of speed is a lure. These sharks feed on oz salmon and tailor a great deal on the beaches. Unhappy coincidence that surfers are also waiting for waves in the feeding zone.

Dinga MuzzThe other day I almost bit my hand!!! I mean I bit some food that was on the fork my hand was holding but it was in the same area as my hand so....... Same logic as this stupid story.... almost bit nothing!!!

Pompoi JamieWow, a shark in the water swimming...!?!? How can they say "surfer almost bitten" when the shark doesn't even attempt to bite him? How do they know it's a white? Just a wild guess. It could be any breed of shark

Wayne CullenAlmost bitten??? I never seen it attempt to bite him, it's was swimming when the bloke went to catch a wave and he scared it off with a kick of his foot

Craig Warrenthe shark was just doing what it normally do it,s saw movement and when after it just like a lure. You get in their home and your the trespasser .Not the shark
