Kleptosharks!

These remarkable pictures show the moment a tiger shark snatched an underwater camera system from the hands of dutch photographer Karin Brussaard during an underwater diving expedition in the Bahamas. After he took several photos, the shark decided enough was enough and grabbed the equipment in its jaws before swimming off.

Brussaard, from the Netherlands, said: "Luckily it did drop it eventually and remarkably the camera only seemed to have a couple of scratches on it".

She continued: "There were about six or seven tiger sharks down there and we couldn't believe our luck. We
were having a great time photographing them all until one diver swam towards one of them trying to get a better shot. The shark suddenly seemed to get angry and snatched the camera right out of his hands." Tiger sharks are considered to be one of the most dangerous shark species in the world and are responsible for many recorded attacks on humans, second only to the great white shark.
However this story it's not so unusual and sharks stealing cameras and videocameras have been reported several times as you can see in the amazing video here below where another Tiger Shark eats a diver's video camera while it is still rolling allowing us to get a first hand view of what it looks like to be chewed up by a giant shark. Filmed By Stuart Cove and his team from Stuart Cove's Dive Bahamas and documented with still photography by world renowned underwater still photographer Stephen Frink.

    Hey! This is kind of off topic but I need some advice from an established blog.
    Is it tough to set up your own blog? I'm not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty quick. I'm thinking about making
    my own but I'm not sure where to start. Do you have any points or suggestions? Many thanks
