Frightening shark attack caught on point-of-view video

By Leonard Ho - Posted Mar 17, 2014 09:30 AM
If there is one thing that can make a person "pull a sea cucumber" in the open ocean, it's seeing a shark speeding towards you mouth wide open. Jason Dimitri, a noble diver culling invasive lionfish in the Caribbean, encountered just that ... and recorded the scary shark aggression on his GoPro video camera!

As this sensational video shows, culling lionfish is not without its risks.  Jason endorses support of organizations like to help with their marine conservation and education programs.

This post has admittedly little to do with aquariums except one very important lesson (one we've spoken about many times before): NEVER dispose of your aquarium contents - livestock, substrate/decoration, even water - into local bodies of water.  Irresponsible actions like this not only potentially upend native ecosystems with invasive species but also endanger people who have to clean up your mess.
