A scuba diver filming the ocean floor had a lucky escape after an eight-foot shark mistook his camera for food.
The incident occurred off the coast of Maine in the US.
Thirty-year-old Scott McNichol was filming the sea bed as part of an environmental assessment when the shark snapped at his camera.
After realising the camera was not food the shark lost interest and swam away.
