    Massive great white shark 'stalks' kids playing in sea just feet from shore

    Massive great white shark 'stalks' kids playing in sea just feet from shore

    Many people don't understand that large sharks can get very close to shore. Video at link.

    ncredible footage shows a great white shark swim just feet away from a group of unsuspecting children.

    The drone clip captures the predator stalking the shore near the kids of the popular beach.



    Its dark outline can be seen in the water at Tuncurry Beach in Forster, New South Wales, Australia.


    The shark gets closer and closer to the three kids, before eventually swimming off and out of harm's way.
    The shark likely was not hungry, just curious.

    The lesson here: Teach idiots that they are not invincible.
    Admire them from the high deck of a very big boat.
    And stay the hell out of shark waters. It is their home, after all.

    This happened about a quarter mile from our summer house.

    I swim in fresh water only, since the seals came.



    The bottom shoals off pretty sharply on the Outer Cape, the seals provide a shark buffet.

    I like the idea of relocating these sharks to the Rio Grande. Plenty of good eating in those waters and helps us with border issue.

    Very nice idea St. James
