In New Zealand, fishermen were surprised to see a shark jump on the front of their boat. They filmed the scene and the video is impressive.

While sailing at sea off New Zealand, fishermen encountered a major surprise. A huge mako shark, 2.50 meters long, jumped on their boat. These sharks are known to make great jumps out of the water, since they can rise up to 6 meters high.

The animal jumped out of the water before landing on the front of the boat . The scene, which was filmed by one of the sailors, is impressive.

“Everyone reacted well. , said one of the fishermen. We were protected by the front windshield. Luckily the shark didn't jump off the back of the boat as that's where everyone was fishing so that would have been a different story, really dangerous. »

Once on the boat, the shark mako stayed put for a few minutes, before returning to the water.

' It was crazy ! I've never seen anything like it in all my years on the water , continued the fisherman. The animal remained on the boat for more than two minutes, before descending back into the water safely. He was not injured. My heart was pounding. I had to sit down for a while. Everyone was stunned. Then, after a few minutes, we went back to fishing. »

More fear than harm for these fishermen who are unlikely to forget this day.
