A large tiger shark created a tense situation for divers during a recent expedition to Tiger Beach in the Bahamas.
Check out the footage, uploaded Thursday by Italy's Giovanni Rossi Filangieri. It begins with a large and curious tiger shark backing up a photographer, and includes yelling from the dive leader, who was trying to control the situation by positioning the divers in a safer line.
The dive spot is famous for close encounters with tiger sharks, which are lured in with chum and sometimes hand-fed.
Last spring a diver pulled his foot from the mouth of a large tiger shark and was fortunate the shark didn't actually bite. (See 40-second mark of that clip.)
The sharks, of course, are just looking for food, and it's fortunate that they do not typically attack items they do not regard as prey (such as humans).
But even sharks make mistakes. Thankfully, they are few and far between.
