Terrifying images show the terrifying sight of being about to be eaten by a SHARK

TERRIFIC photos show the terrifying prospect if you are ever unlucky enough to be eaten by a shark.

Photographer Euan Rannachan took the photos about 130 miles off the coast of Baja California and says he wasn’t impressed by the sea creatures.

“I’ve never been scared in a cage,” he said.

“Once you’re in the water with these animals, you can easily show how peaceful it is, and not scary at all.”

Rannachan shoots the photos from a shark cage so he can get up close and personal with the animals.

The 1975 film Jaws made great white sharks the fear of most people who dared venture into the water, and Rannachan’s photos make those fears a reality.

A haunting image shows a shark’s jaws open, sharp teeth in full view, as it prepares to engulf a much smaller fish.

The predators can grow up to 20 feet in length and weigh up to 6,600 pounds.

For Rannachan, they are the perfect models for his unconventional photos.

“A large male great white shark was interested in the bait and made a few half-hearted attempts to catch it,” he said of his method of luring the sharks for a photo.

“When those failed, it went full on the Apex Predator right in front of me on the line.”

Rannachan says the creatures are curious and not as aggressive towards humans as the movies make it seem.

Sharks only bite about five to ten people a year and usually take a “test bite” out of curiosity before swimming away.

The sharks use their noses to detect prey in the water and sense electrical signals to “hear” the heartbeats of others around them.

Their sense of smell is so keen that they can sniff out a colony of seals from two miles away.

“Great white sharks have small jelly-filled sacs mainly in their noses called ampullae de Lorenzini,” Rannachan said.

“They use these small holes filled with jelly to sense electrical impulses in the water, like an animal in distress.

“You can also use these sensors to feel your heartbeat in the cage,” he said.

Rannachan says he's not afraid to get close to the sea creatures
