The curious beast can be seen approaching the unsuspecting swimmer.

It then glides right past the paddleboarder before pressing close to the surf just as a woman leaves the waterstill apparently totally unaware of what’s lurking behind her.

Finally the mighty shark heads towards a group of snorkellers, before heading back to the paddleboarder to take another look.

他说: “They’re common. During certain times I see them every time I fly my drone.

Then there is a chance that the shark could mistakenly bite the person while chasing the baitfish.

The other scenario is when a diver is spearfishing.

Once a fish is shot it will struggle and bleed causing sharks to charge into the area and attempt to eat the speared fish.

If the spearfisherman is close to the speared fish the shark might accidentally bite the person.

Bull sharks are territorial by nature and easily-provoked and so are often blamed when a shark attacks a human.

他加了: “Sharks do not want to attack people.

If a shark bite occurs it is almost always a mistake by the shark or a person being in the way of the shark and a potential meal for the shark.

It comes after an 11-foot great white shark was spotted only three miles from a famous US beach on Sunday.

The shark, named Freya by Sea World, was seen on the outer banks of Pea Island in North Carolina on Father’s Day.

Freya, who weighs 883 磅, triggered the nonprofit’s shark tracker system when she came close to the shore.
