Deadly pursuit: The moment diver comes face to face with killer shark

Only the Daily Mail could come up with a 1970's shark headline like this.

It might even sell a few more papers.

Kudos to underwater photographer Brian Skerry (we're huge fans) for getting in the shark conservation messaging he did and great quotes by Doc G talking about shark declines in the region.

Also continuing fantastic Oceanic White Tip images coming out of Cat Island (just a wild guess) in the Bahamas.

In all a balanced piece with a major media outlet seemingly biased towards selling shark horror and not the actual shark. While the article tries to paint sharks badly the images and direct quotes tell a different story.
