"It was so incredibly big, we thought it was a baby humpback whale," said Jimmy Hall, owner of Hawaii Shark Encounters.

Hall and his crew soon realized that the animal was not a whale, but a great white shark, 18 to 20 feet long. They too got excited, scrambled for their video and still cameras, entered the cage with the tourists and started snapping and recording.

After about 10 minutes of recording video and noticing that the large animal was not behaving aggressively, Hall realized this was his chance to fulfill a lifelong dream.

He exited the cage to swim with a great white shark.

"It was rubbing against the boat and cage. It looked like it was being very friendly and being very curious, not biting anything," Hall said.


Timothy Treadwell is alive and well, it seems.

Er, for now.

Umm, uh, no thanks, I think I'll pass!
There was a movie in the 70's named "Blue Water, White Death" (Anyone remember Adrian Barbeau in a custom wet suit?) There was a scene in the movie where a great white crashed through the shark cage, killing the camera man inside. That actually happened and the camera man in the cage was really killed. Personally, I wouldn't get in a cage, and wouldn't even think about getting in the water.

for those out of the loop, "lolo" isn't some internet shortcut way of laughing at the guy. it's a Hawaiian way of saying that the guy is modeling darwinism.
