  • Great white shark breaches at feet of startled scientist'Did you see that

"Did you see that?" the researcher yells back.

Over in the States, they generally drop the "great" and just call them "white sharks".

Atlantic White Shark Conservancy experts said exact population of these sharks in USA waters was unknown, "but the species is thought to be rare".

A MA shark expert had a close encounter with a great white shark last week, and it was all caught on camera. It has since gone viral with over two lakh views and thousands of shares.

The scientist is Greg Skomal from the Massachusetts Division of Marine Fisheries.

A CONSERVATION researcher got a little too close for comfort with one of his subjects when a huge great white shark leapt out of the ocean beneath him with it's jaws wide open.

But he was quick to point out his United side were closest to runaway leaders Manchester City last season, even if they finished 19 points adrift.

In this case, Skomal was trying to record video of the shark as part of the five-year shark population study he's conducting in association with the AWSC. "It opened it's mouth right at my feet!"

It is unclear if it was the same shark that was spotted or another shark.

The Atlantic White Shark Conservancy wrote on Facebook that the organization has seen great white sharks breaching on previous research trips and received reports from fishermen and boaters who have also observed the behavior.

The Harbormaster's Office says the White shark sighting was confirmed around 3 p.m. off Manomet Point.

The incident happened off the coast of Wellfleet, Massachusetts, the Facebook post said.
