Great White Shark jumps out of the water into Boat!

This definitely falls into the category of "Things That Rock"!


CBS news reports that a real Great White Shark more than ten feet long and half a ton jumps into the back of a research vessel off the coast of South Africa.


In this video you will see actual photos of the event as well as a follow up Skype Interview with one of the researchers.

This reminds me of the time when I saw "Jaws" as a young boy.  That movie scarred me for life!  I was so scared that i couldn't even swim in swimming pools for years after that!  As I finally grew brave enough to snorkel in the waters of California, Mexico,  and Hawaii i would constantly turn around and look for sharks.  Finally,  I became brave enough to do my own shark fishing in California.   It took decades to conquer my fear!

Now i learn that Great Whites actually jump into boats for real!  

I wanted to share this with you.  I hope you like it!
