CHILLING drone footage reveals how difficult it is to see sharks prowling off the coast of Australia when a monster appears out of sight.
Aussie snapper Sean Scott stunned internet users after sharing a clip from the town of Esperance with the caption “can you see the shark?”.
Viral footage appears to show the beautiful clear blue water moving peacefully in waves from above.
But for a brief moment, one can see the outline of a shark pushing just below the surface before disappearing.
However, many viewers were convinced that the video did not show a shark as they tried to spot the creature.
Commenting on Instagram, one person wrote: “No sharks. We were baited.”
Another said: “I’ve looked so hard that now every shadow looks like a shark. No idea.”
A third replied: “Finally I saw it, took 100 of my screenshots to spot it but I did.”
It comes after a Diving instructor Brit was killed by a 15ft great white shark in Australia just days before the safety lines were installed.
Simon Nellist, 35, was killed by a predator just 150 meters from the beach at Buchan Point, near Little Bay in Sydney, in the first deadly attack in the area in nearly 60 years.
Witness said they heard the victim crying out for help like a shark in February.
The great white is said to have “attacked vertically” before hauling the man’s body out of the ocean.
Expert Lawrence Chlebeck thinks the ferocious shark may have mistook the swimmer – believed to be wearing a wetsuit – with a seal when it jumped out and attacked the Brit.
It came just three months after another Brit Paul Millachip was attacked and killed off the coast of Western Australia.
The 57-year-old was dragged underwater by a large 14ft white fish when he was killed right in front of his horrified family.
Simon is an ocean lover who has spoken out against shark nets and drum ropes, which he indiscriminately says are “all kinds of sea life every year”.
