If you have ever thought of going into a shark dive cage, please think again. 😀
A jaw-dropping and mesmerizing video taken by a diver off the coast of Guadalupe Island, Mexico, shows a great white mega shark biting and rattling a cage with a group of divers inside.
Thank god, no one was hurt in the encounter, though the shark suffered a chipped tooth, according the Islander’s Charters company’s Facebook post of the encounter.
The company, Island Charters, Inc, explained that the shark goes by the name of Bullet, and she’s apparently 17 feet long.
OH MY GOSH…WAIT FOR IT!Our divers had the thrill of a lifetime! Meet 'Bullet', a female Great White Mega Shark. She'll rock your world – literally! Taken with us aboard the 'Islander' at Guadalupe Island by guest Nancy Lasuzzo on 10/12/19. Best with sound on. Unbelievable, love BOTH of their big smiles! We LOVE sharks!Bullet is playing with the float on topside of the cage and was not harmed except for a chipped tooth. Not to worry, she's got hundreds to spare!#islander #islaguadalupe #greatwhitesharks #bullet #wow #cagediving #islandercharters #notscary #YOLO #onlyfearismissingout

Lasuzzo who is in the video is seen to be in joy and celebrating the moment the shark came up close with her.“I hope this story shows people you need to respect great white sharks, but you don’t have to be afraid! So grateful for this experience of a lifetime,” she wrote on her own Facebook page.
Clearly a happy customer, she also wrote a glowing review on Island Charter Inc’s Facebook page.
“I will never forget the feeling of being in the cage with three other ladies when beautiful Bullet, the 17 ft female Great White Mega Shark, came to visit our cage,” Lasuzzo gushed. “When she started to ‘play’ with the float on the cage, there was surprisingly no fear from any of us. We were in awe and amazed at the power she had.”
The adventurous diver also explained that seeing Bullet was the highlight of the trip because “her size was so much greater than the sharks we had seen the last day and a half.”
Oh and here’s a Fun Fact!
According to J. E. Randall, the largest white shark reliably measured was a 6.0 m (19.7 ft) individual reported from Ledge Point, Western Australia in 1987.
