Curious shark caught on camera

Albany Advertiser

An inquisitive shark has swam within metres of beachgoers at Cheynes Beach on WA’s south coast.

Drone photographer @InspireOverland shot the footage of the shark on January 21 at the popular holiday spot east of Albany.

The footage shows a mako or bronze-whaler shark approach the shallows despite the presence of several people.

The Instagrammer said he was not sure of the species of shark but found its behaviour fascinating.

“It hung around for some time, the kids doing swimming lessons had to be called back to shore,” he said.
