A British photographer and filmmaker named Euan Rannachan captured a terrifyingly magnificent picture of a great white shark heading to the surface of the water, and it looks just like the poster of JAWS. According to Daily Mail, the 17ft predator was captured off the west coast of Mexico.

In the image, the menacing predator can be seen showing off its jagged teeth as it swims overhead in the photo. Steven Spielberg's 1975 horror classic has an image of a similar shark floating towards an unsuspecting innocent victim. This is one of the most iconic movie posters of all time, comes courtesy of artist Roger Kastel.



 

 

32-year-old Euan was just a few feet away from the shark in a cage when he captured the image. "The shark in my image is a female and her name is Squirrel. We'd been with her for a while. We have these people on the boat called shark wranglers and they throw these two-foot chunks of tuna to get the shark close to the surface," said the young photographer. Wonder what he felt like when he saw the shark up close, right?



 

Bev Armbruster said: Just when we thought it was safe to go back in the water! Jane Sorensen Atkisson decided to stick to her own opinion: Some posting finds them beautiful, I appreciate them like an animal and have nothing against them, but beautiful? No, don’t see it. Very unsettling and bit scary to me.

Walter Lenard addressed climate change and global warming: Show humans hunting millions of sharks and wiping out another entire species that's even way more terrifying.



 

"The shark wrangles played an important and dangerous part on the acquisition of this amazing picture. A guy named Crazy Luis stood up on the boat to bring the shark to us when we sit on the surface in the shark cage," said Euan.

"Sometimes when the Wranglers play with the sharks, the sharks get p****d off and dive down under the boat and the bait so they can come rocketing up and get it," he added. 



 

 

"That's exactly what Squirrel was doing here, she was fed up probably messing around on the surface and dived back down under the boat. It was really deep there but the water clarity was amazing", said the 32-year-old about his shark experience.

The movie Jaws is about a police Chief Martin Brody, played by Roy Scheider, in Amity Island where a young woman has been killed by a shark while skinny-dipping near the New England tourist town. 



 

 

An ichthyologist, Matt Hooper (Richard Dreyfuss), and a ship captain, Quint (Robert Shaw), offer to help Brody capture the killer beast, and the trio engages in an epic battle of man vs. nature.
