    A video was posted on YouTube this week of a shark getting into a cage diving cage, while a diver was still in it.

    Does this put you off cage diving? Would you have done it in the first place? Or do you think this is an isolated incident.

    Honestly, I'd still do it. I've seen documentaries about shark diving and majority of the time as long as you don't bother sharks, they won't bother you.

    Yeah I'd be open to doing it given I was persuaded enough.

    But seriously how did the shark get through ? These cages are supposed to be designed so that this doesn't happen. I'd be pissed if I was that diver. Almost lost his life just because of insufficient cage strength. The reason I'd might do it because of the odds of this happening are extremely low, people go in underwater cages all the time and this is rarely occurs, though this should never be happening at all.

    I'd do it if it was in a cage where sharks actually couldn't get in. That's be a good start.

    Seen a few videos where this has happened. Probably wouldn't do it, I'm ****ing petrified of big things underwater (or megalohydrothalassophobia, as it's called).

    Never ever! Never ever!! the shark is one of the animals which I have the greatest respect - and anxiety. This predator is huge and has sharpened razor teeth. The only one I would do is to see such animals in an aqua qorld behind an aquarium.

    A lot of people swim with sharks sans the cage although personally I'd want the cage there.
    Sharks aren't out to kill you all the time. I'm not sure if the same can be said about swimming crocodiles & alligators; you don't hear many stories of people surviving going swimming with them.

    I've been diving and freediving with sharks, they are generally fine (had one slightly aggressive hammerhead but only inquisitive). Cage diving is even safer.

    But, Great whites and perhaps bull sharks are in a seperate league to most sharks.

    I'm more afraid of box jellyfish, they really hurt.
