“While swimming in the ocean, this diver comes face to face with a tiger shark. The hungry tiger shark decides it wanted a close up and swims up close to the GoPro,” the video’s description reads.

Without spoiling too much of the video, we can tell you the shark thinks the GoPro camera is some sort of tasty treat that’s just waiting to be chomped. Interestingly, the camera is not destroyed, surviving the incident to record what’s it like to be bitten by a shark — and yes, it would be a scary experience.

The full video follows below, with more GoPro impressive recordings available at our GoPro hub.
