Stunning Great White Shark Photobomb Filmed Off South Africa [Video]

A group of cage divers have managed to capture stunning footage of a great white shark photobombing another of its species off the coast of South Africa, as they faced the predators from behind protective bars in the waters of Mossel Bay.

The video was captured at Seal Island, according to Grind TV, a popular hotspot for great whites. Remo Sabatini recorded the footage while on an expedition with White Shark Africa, having entered the water in a cage with six other divers.

"We sometimes see great whites behave in this way," Abbott observed. "No seal or anything, just a totally random breach. Amazing to see."

While unusual, the footage isn't the first photobomb attributed to a shark. Last year, a spinner shark shot from the ocean during a surfing competition in Australia, and was photographed amid a large crowd, as the Huffington Post reported. A similar situation transpired when two white sharks were filmed in the Neptune Islands, also last year, biting into each other as they breached. Sabatini's footage, however, stands apart as quite possibly the most unexpected and unusual white shark photobomb ever filmed off South Africa.
