Greeted is in fact a polite way of putting it because almost immediately the great white actually tries to take a bite out of the fearless diver who decides to venture outside of the cage.

If you take our advice, don't start hunting for giant sharks to 'pat', instead take up something slightly less fatal such as skateboarding, work your way up from there and finally take to the skies and become one of those people that owns a wingsuit.

Sure it's just as dangerous but at least you'll have some semblance of control over what's happening.
