Video: Rear Facing Camera Captures Shot of Pursuing Great White

Great white shark chasing an underwater towed camera
Check out this awesome footage of a great white swimming towards a towed camera. The 4 meter shark was captured on video by Charles Maxwell, a 68-year-old cameraman and diver who lives in Cape Town, South Africa.

Charles frequently tows his camera behind his boat in hopes of capturing some unique underwater shots.  He does not use any bait but instead relies on the instinctive curiosity of the animals to come close and explore the foreign object in their waters.

On this occasion, Charles scored a great capture when the large great white began pursing the camera and then eventually, taking a bite.  As the video title says, now you know what it is like to be chased by a great white shark.

Video posted by Barcroft TV and is 2 minutes in length.
