Great White Shark Attacks, Sinks GoPro Camera (VIDEO)
Cameraman Andy Casagrande IV will think twice about being as pushy with a prehistoric alpha predator next time
“No pictures, please.”
Maybe this great white shark was taking cues from Kanye West or Jonah Hill. Maybe she was just having a bad day. Either way, we bet this photographer will think twice about waving a GoPro in a massive, toothy alpha predator’s face again.
360 Heros is a company that specializes in high-end, custom 360-degree camera gear. (Basically, you take six GoPro cameras and arrange them in a hexagonal shape, giving a cameraman a 360-degree view of sharks or the Grand Canyon or what have you.) Diver Andy Casagrande IV was using one such rig for the first time for a project for Shark Week, when a great white decided it looked appetizing, or threatening, or possibly both.
360 Heros is offering a $5,000 reward to those who might want to venture to the bottom of the ocean floor around New Zealand to look for it. Anyone need a summer project?
