A great white shark was caught on video lunging at a boat and gnashing its teeth at the propeller, shocking the group of men on board.
In the clip, recorded in Bulli, New South Wales, Australia, the gigantic shark lurks below the surface of the water as one of the men records it on hs phone.
The shark looks like it will swim under the boat, then suddenly breaches the water and tries to sink its teeth into the motor.
While the men laugh and scream in shock, the shark thrashes in the water wildly before disappearing from view.
“He’s gonna bite ma motor,” a man says.
Great white sharks as large as five meters long have been gathering in the waters around Bulli since a humpback whale carcass washed up – sparking a feeding frenzy.
People have been advised to stay away from the water, 9 News reports.
The video has divided viewers after being shared on social media, with some defending the shark for being in its natural habitat and others saying it should be killed.
“Leave them alone have respect for those animals,” commented one person.
A second said: “Yer start motor on full revs spray his teeth and brains all over the place.”
“Start the motor put it in gear he won’t do that again,” wrote a third viewer.
A great white shark recently bit a boat at the same location, with the presence of the whale meat making them more aggressive than usual.
This comes after a great white shark “five metres long” lazily circled around a small fishing boat near Bulli beach, leaving witnesses awestruck.
“Oh my God, are you s***ing me?” screams one of the startled blokes as it swims inches away from him.
Tragically, a man was mauled to death by a great white shark on Tuesday, September 8, despite brave surfers trying to save his life.
