GANSBAAI, SOUTH AFRICA - OCTOBER 19: A Great White Shark is attracted by a lure on the 'Shark Lady Adventure Tour' on October 19, 2009 in Gansbaai, South Africa. The lure, usually a tuna head, is attached to a buoy and thrown into the water in front of the cage with the divers. The waters off Gansbaai are the best place in the world to see Great White Sharks, due to the abundance of prey such as seals and penguins which live and breed on Dyer Island, which lies 8km from the mainland.

Somebody in a boat off the coast of South Africa filmed a seal escaping the jaws of a great white shark that was about to make it a meal. 

You actually see the shark start to strike, but the seal leaps out of the water at the last second . . . and then takes off for dear life.


That was close! Seal narrowly escapes great white shark's jaws

This seal narrowly escaped from the jaws of death when he played chicken with a 10-foot-long great white shark. Footage shows a seal suddenly coming across a massive shark and then leaping away to safety with seconds to spare.
