Spine-tingling moment diver is confronted by ‘zombie shark’ caught on video

Published

on

As Captain Quint from “Jaws” said — “it’s got lifeless eyes.”

A cage diver in Mexico captured the terrifying moment a massive “zombie shark” chowed down on prey right in front of his face. Video of the dead-eyed predator first surfaced in 2019, but is currently blowing up on Youtube as gawkers marvel at its ghoulish visage.

“I have seen this shark more than once, I don’t remember her name but she is a female that we had seen at the island before,” videographer and shark photographer Euan Rannachan, 36, told NeedToKnow.online of the incredible footage, which he captured at Guadalupe island, about 125 miles off the coast of mainland Mexico, Jam Press reported.

“I have loved sharks ever since I was a little boy, but I did not dive with white sharks till 2016,” the great white gawker gushed while describing his unusual hobby. “After doing it one time I became hooked and started a company taking people out to Guadalupe Island to see the sharks with a good Friend Nikki.”

"I have seen this shark more than once, I don’t remember her name but she is a female that we had seen at the island before,” said videographer and shark photographer Euan Rannachan.

Rannachan said he chose that particular region as it “is a migration path for a couple different kinds of seals and makes for a great place for a white shark to have a snack.”

The macabre clip, shot from inside a shark cage, starts off typically enough with a large great white shark swimming towards a block of chum tethered to the boat. Things take a terrifying turn, however, when the super predator’s eyes roll back in its head as it takes the bait. A subsequent slow motion shot depicts in detail as Jaws flashes the “great whites” of its eyes at the photographer mid-chomp from seemingly inches away from the camera.

Despite evoking something out a George Romero film, the spooky display is actually a standard defense mechanism that protects the shark’s eyes while it feeds.

“They close their eyes because sometimes dinner fights back,” Rannachan explained. “So the white shark deploys a sort of shield if you will over their eyes when they go into attack mode just to make sure their eyes will be fine and survive the battle.”

Nonetheless, the nightmarish visage sent shudders across Youtube with one Jaws-struck viewer exclaiming, “100% zombie shark right there.”

Another called the freaky footage “scary.”

“That’s not a zombie that’s the eye shouting to protect it from debris or blood,” scoffed one realist gawker, to which Rannachan replied, “lol I know.”

The photog wasn’t filming the oceanic predators just for kicks. “We donate all our photos to Marine Conservation Science Index (MCSI) in Mexico who compiles a database of all the sharks we see,” Rannachan explained. “And with the help of the sharks’ different countershading patterns and sometimes other unique markings, we can tell who is who in the water.”

The shark-umenter says his ultimate goal is to “help change the negative stigma attached to sharks, and help empower people to do things they never thought they could!”

Shark aficionados don’t have to travel all the way to Mexico to see this apex predator in action. On Sunday, a great white was filmed devouring a seal off Nantucket, marking Massachusetts’ first official sighting of the season.

Published

on

Actress Anne Heche, known for her roles in such films as Donnie Brasco, Volcano and I Know What You Did Last Summer, was involved in a fiery car crash in the Mar Vista area of Los Angeles on Friday.

According to TMZ, Heche was driving a blue Mini Cooper and had first crashed into the garage of an apartment complex. Residents of the apartment complex tried to get her out of the vehicle but she backed up and sped off.

Footage of Heche speeding down the streets of her neighborhood had been obtained by TMZ as well as her initial encounter at the apartment complex.

In the first clip, you can hear her car crash towards the end. It has been reported that the actress crashed into someone’s home, causing her vehicle and the house to erupt into flames. Heche suffered severe burns and was resisting being taken away in a stretcher. You can also view footage of this via the TMZ article.

It has not been confirmed whether alcohol has been involved in the incident since her condition prevents doctors from performing any tests to determine if she was driving under the influence. She is currently intubated in the hospital but expected to live.

These are the vulgar license-plate requests the DMV has rejected

Published

on

Stay CL4SSY, New York!

The state Department of Motor Vehicles nixed 3,752 requests for vanity license plates in the last three years because it deemed them too raunchy, radical or simply ridiculous.

New York’s personalized plates go for $60 initially, and then $31.25 annually for renewal. You can get any plate as long as no one else has it and it’s not offensive.

Odds are a request for a plate that marks a wedding anniversary or shows your allegiance to a team — like METS86 — will pass muster with the DMV gatekeepers.

Vulgarity won’t get you to first base.

So plates with the phrase LFGM — the acronym for Pete Alonso’s “Let’s F–king Go Mets” rallying cry — did not make the cut.

And you won’t see anyone driving around with the custom plates MILFDAD, AS5M4N and WLHUNG.

Crude meanings such as “MILFDAD” are unacceptable by the DMV.

The DMV also put NICEBUNS, FATFANNY, GOTAPOOP and BENDOVER in the rear-view mirror.

One player unsuccessfully tried to score the plate YESDADDY, to no avail.

The DMV also shot down such dark requests as DEADGIRL, GENOC1DE, S8TAN, DETONATE and MURDERM3.

Getting political is a dead end too — FJOEBIDN, FDTRUMP and CNNLIES were nixed.

LUDEDUDE, NARCO, GOT METH and BLUNT also went up in smoke.

Staten Island attorney Bill Dertinger said his blue 1995 Jaguar SJS was tagged with ESQLTD after his company and his 2014 Porsche had the plate GHOSTGTS because the sleek sportscar was white.

“The plates can make you stand out — which can be a curse or a blessing,” the 54-year-old Dertinger said. “Make sure you don’t cut anybody off.”

There must be a New York Jets fan playing referee at the DMV because a request for the seemingly innocent plate GASE was sidelined. Ex-Jets head coach Adam Gase had an offensive 9-23 win-loss record during his forgettable two-year tenure.

The DMV would not reveal who gives the final yea or nay.

“The DMV reviews all custom license plate requests and works hard to ensure that any combinations that may be considered objectionable are rejected,” said agency spokesman Tim O’Brien.

“GLOCKS” referring to guns is not accepted by the DMV.
