Very Cool White Shark Encounters 2012 - Video

Occasionally spear fishermen get fist hand encounters with Mr.White and thanks to mini cam systems like GoPro these rare encounters get caught on film.

Of course the media want to make these encounters into more than they are, the natural curiousness of a top order predator on its daily rounds. Having said that the footage is always dynamic and riveting.

Kudos to Nathan and his buddy  for taking this encounter in stride and not harming the shark:

"The Fisheries Department said it was most likely a white pointer."

"Most likely," it's Australian for "definitely," mate!
