What would you do if you were swimming and swam straight into a great white shark?
If you’re Bonnie Brown, you’d have nerves of steel and just enjoy the rare encounter! She recently shared a GoPro video of her surprisingly calm encounter with one of the ocean’s biggest predators, and it’s pretty crazy!
She described the encounter in her own words on her YouTube channel, saying:
“A peaceful encounter with an extraordinary animal. I was on a 22ft boat with my friend Eric Mailander, an avid wildlife photographer. We had spotted at least 9 white sharks that day, in an area where it is not uncommon to see that many individuals. Some of the sharks were curious and would approach my GoPro when I put it in the water! These sharks may have a menacing grin, but they don’t deserve their bad reputation – they were actually quite tranquil and calm throughout the day. I lucked out to have this curious creature give me such a great close-up.”
