Family on holiday in Australia for a week and a half when husband, wife and their 15 year old son decided to go scuba diving. The husband is in the navy and has had some scuba experience. His son wanted a pic of his mum and dad in all their gear so got the under water camera on the go.When it came to taking the pic the dad realized that the son look like he was panicking as he took it and gave the ‘OK’ hand sign to see if he was alright.

The son took the pic and swam to the surface and back to the boat as quick as he could so the mum and dad followed to see if he was OK. When they got back to him he was scrambling onto the boat and absolutely shitting himself.

When the parents asked why , he said ‘there was a shark behind you’ and the dad thought he was joking but the skipper of the boat said it was true and that they wouldn’t believe him if he told them what it was.. As soon as they got back to the hotel they put the pic onto the laptop and this is what they saw

Shark behind family

I also used to animate a lul!,



Yeahh, no good!, this image HAS been photoshoped, i did copy and past the forward from my GF. So its not even original material. Here is the picture of the shark BEFORE it has been pasted into our diver’s back ground.

Comment by me

If that was real I reckon that would be very very frightening but I think that is very unlikely for two reasons. 1- The shark might be big but if you think about their usual size and put it in proportion to a human you’d realise the shark should be bigger, 2- If that had happened I very much doubt that their son wouldn’t have warned them, he wouldn’t have taken the picture either. He would have screamed and swam away.

WOW I can’t belive it my teacher Mr.A got an e.mail from his wife. We all said it was so cool but A.G said the mom and dad where at a place where they where the shark was behind the glass. Any way that is some awsom photoshop.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Comment by Hannah/Phil

WWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOOOOOWWWWWWWI am 50 50 with all this crap even if the shark just ate it would have killed them for fresh meat. Anyway
ssssswwwwwweeeeeeeettttttttt photoshp job.

Comment by ????UNNOWN

Ok this cannot be real because i would have died of panic if a shark that big was about to eat my parents. and the shark would have ate them or at least bitten one of them. nice try but there is no way that could be real

Comment by Kirstyn

im not sure if this is real because it could go either way. it might not have attacked them because the parents weren’t afraid (and sharks can sense fear), the shark may not have been hugry, and there was’t ay blood. i still dont beleive the sos reaction. why would he still take the pic. ayway awesome pic

Comment by anaonymous

It certainly looks good, but if the light on water made the cool markings on the shark body , why are there none of the people, their suits or their tanks? it looks like the light source is different for the people than for the shark.

my 2 cents

omg that is so coooooool and it looks like a biiigggggg shark !!!!!!
it loooks like its about eat her head!!!!!!! id be soooooo scared!!!!!!

Comment by hannah

I think the shark just wanted to be in the picture :]

The people that say its photo shopped and the shark would have attacked them are wrong cuz sharks only attack if they are hungry or if there is blood. Maybe the shark just ate a school of fish and wasnt hungry.

So we totally believe this pic :]

Comment by Cami & Carol

do people think sharks eat everything they see it sould be real but the shark would have sensed the boys panic and im sure the shark is faster than the boy

Comment by dustin

oh come on! this is bullshit. this is so done on adobe photoshop. are you dumb or something?!?!?!?!! why do you think there is a photo of a shark, then below it theres people in front of the exact same shark?? ITS PHOTOSHOP PEOPLE! PHOTOSHOP IS AN AMAZING THING- ITS DONE ON THERE!!

Comment by hanza

Comment by nelssson

this is a peice of pooooooo! It looks real but totally fake and poopy

Comment by Billy

For crying out loud. Why are some people wondering whether it’s real or not? The link to Snopes who catagorically state it as false was posted in post 7 above, back in Nov 2007!!!!

Here it is again!
