Amazing, but it does not look like a bull shark.

Yes, and it scared the crap out of me. Hit him with a .357 it didn't kill it, but he swam off. Getting a larger caliber before going back. That was a good move jamming the spear in his mouth, no way he could come back for another pass with the spear and the whole speargun buried.

I was thinking the same thing. Way too sharp of a nose.

Re: Has anyone had a bull shark be this aggressive a diver asks.

amazing experience!!
a typical load of shark made from the depth..
I ripped the vid and with FCP edit a pic which seem to show, in my modest opinion, a sandbar shark? (the wide pectoral triangular fin)


That makes me think that about two weeks ago my cuban colleague and me have been got seriously harassed by 3 reef sharks in the blue and one of them bit the Gopro cam and the pole

a pic taken just at the time the reef shark bit... before taking off

Yes it was a Bull shark off the coast of Queensland Australia. They get gnarly out there!
