    The drone footage, filmed by a local teenager, shows the fearsome predator cruising amongst the group of friends in Plettenberg Bay, South Africa. The kayaker warns his surfer pal whose legs are just a couple of feet from the jaws of the great white. Zachary told reporters: "We normally fly the drone to capture nature and I saw the shark and followed it and when I saw how close it had got the surfers I told my dad to go get them out of the water. "He was on his way to get them out but by then the shark...

The enormous predator known as 'Deep Blue', is believed to weigh around 2.5tons and measure up to 20 ft , was first seen by Mark Mohler and Kimberly Jeffries, who are both divers and photographers, on Sunday last week. And the pair soon leapt into the water to take a closer look at the creature as she fed on a dead sperm whale, around nine miles from the coast off the Hawaiian island...

    President Barack Obama visited his massively expanded National Marine Reserve off the coast of Hawaii, using the opportunity to do some snorkeling with friends away from the eyes of the press corp. The Papahānaumokuākea marine reserve was first created by President George W. Bush, but Obama has decided to expand it by over half a million square miles. The new boundaries of Papahānaumokuākea marine reserve are larger than all national parks combined and over twice the size of Texas, according to Forbes’ Trevor Nace.

    She had wounds in a half circle across her torso, teeth marks from her upper right shoulder in the back to her pelvis in front and to the other side of her buttocks in the back. Several ribs were fractured. A lung was punctured. She lost no less than a liter of blood. Doctors looked for teeth that might’ve still been in her body. Maria Korcsmaros, a 52-year-old triathlete and mother of three, survived a shark attack Sunday in Corona del Mar. She lived only because of her own quick thinking, strong work from a pair of Newport Beach lifeguards...

    Actor Richard Dreyfuss took to Twitter Monday evening to fire off several profanity-laced tweets against presumptive GOP presidential frontrunner Donald Trump. In one particularly nasty tweet, which has since been deleted, the 68-year-old Jaws star described the billionaire real estate magnate as “a small-d*cked prick,” who had celebrity “whores” supporting his White House run.

    Forty years ago Saturday saw the release of Jaws, an adaptation of a beach-read made by a promising but relatively untested young director, Steven Spielberg. Forty years later, Jaws‘ impact can be felt across moviegoing. The shark tale is perhaps most notable for its box-office success; Jaws became the top-grossing film of all time after its release (and did so more quickly than had its predecessors, with a marketing plan based on blanket advertising rather than a slow rollout). Jaws, with its technical mastery and ability to manipulate the audience into fearing something that for so much of the film’s...

    It might be safe to go in the water now. Monday marks the 40th anniversary of the release of Jaws, director Steven Spielberg’s tale of a great white shark terrorizing a picturesque seaside town. It’s a bona fide classic, deserving of all the praise it gets. But it’s also something of a relic, a throwback to a simpler time in moviemaking when we were less cynical and more easily frightened. For all the monster movie remakes being trotted out this decade, it’s actually not surprising we haven’t seen Jaws sequel since 1987’s Jaws: The Revenge (and not just because that...

    When USS Indianapolis was hit by Japanese torpedoes in the final weeks of WWII, hundreds of crewmen jumped into the water to escape the burning ship. Surrounded by sharks, they waited for a response to their SOS. But no one had been sent to look for them. In late July 1945, USS Indianapolis had been on a special secret mission, delivering parts of the first atomic bomb to the Pacific Island of Tinian where American B-29 bombers were based. Its job done, the warship, with 1,197 men on board, was sailing west towards Leyte in the Philippines when it was...
