Shark Steals Tasty Underwater Camera Rig

An underwater videographer got a surprise when he turned around to see a tiger shark taking off with his camera rig!Luckily one of the other underwater cameramen caught it on video.

From YouTube:

A valuable lesson about leaving cameras unattended with large sharks in the area. The good news is that eventually, Shark Expert Jim Abernethy did get his camera back!

Treehugger noted that these sharks are notorious for eating everything and anything: 

Tiger sharks are known for eating all kinds of weird stuff — some of what’s been recorded include “a roll of tar paper, a tom-tom, a chicken coop, and unexploded munitions”. Yeesh!
