This researcher wasn’t safe from great white shark

A shark swims near a group of surfers and swimmers

MA state biologist Greg Skomal was standing on the pulpit of the research boat last week when the shark made the leap, according to the Boston Globe. "It jumped right out of the water".

The conservancy said scientists received multiple reports of breaching white sharks from fishermen and boaters - but encounters are rare.

"Did you see that?"

National Seashore staffers spotted the shark just after 11:30 a.m. and posted a red flag warning, according to the Atlantic White Shark Conservancy's Sharktivity app.

"It came right up, and opened its mouth right at my feet!"

We usually think of great whites being a quintessentially Aussie shark, but this chap was filmed off the coast of Massachusetts, US.

The researcher stands at a platform at the end of a boat with a GoPro attached to a long pole.

"Holy crap! It dove right out of the water!" yells the captain.

Skomal can be seen hopping back, as if to keep the shark from biting his feet.

The group called it a good reminder of the importance of not becoming complacent and always staying vigilant when in or on the water.

Dr Greg Skomal was on the prowl of a research vessel looking to fit a locator tag on a reported shark off the coast of Cape Cod when he was given a shocking up close and personal view of its gaping jaws.

Great white sharks can get up to 20 feet long, and have powerful tails that enable them to swim up to 15 miles per hour and breach the water during an attack, says National Geographic.
