Tiger shark steals camera – Photographs by Miguel Lasa

Photographer Miguel Lasa captured this amazing picture of a tiger shark snatching his guide’s camera equipment. The £11,000 camera gear and strobes were attached to a rigid framework, making them an easy target for the shark to grab. Tiger sharks are one of the most dangerous shark species, second only to great white sharks for attacks on humans. Powerful swimmers, they can travel long distances very fast. Fortunately, though, the shark decided to drop the camera about 100metres away, and miraculously it was undamaged.

Miguel, a Newcastle doctor, said swimming with these sharks was a great experience, but he wouldn’t do it again.
