During the family vacation last summer, my son Evan had a very close encounter with a shark. It was a small shark that would not have done much, if any damage, but scary nonetheless. Thanks to Hollywood we sort of know what being eaten by a shark looks like, but the below video uses an actual camera to show us what it REALLY looks like. This happened on the 4th of July when some fishermen tied a GoPro camera to a line with some bait and put it in the water. It didn't take long for a big Mako shark to try and make a meal of the camera.

At one point, you can actually look down the shark's throat. This is a very cool video, but it will definitely make me think twice before swimming in the ocean again...yikes!!! See for yourself if you dare.
