A film crew in South Africa got an up close look at a great white shark without ever entering the water.
The MaxAnimal crew was filming when the predator suddenly appeared a few yards away from their rubber boat.
Just seconds later, the fish popped its head out of the water and latched onto the boat relentlessly.
The crew watched and filmed the attack. They said they managed to make it back to shore safely with the semi-deflated raft staying afloat.
They said the scariest part of the ordeal was when the great white shark stared right at them.
