All the bad press of the '90s - set in motion by too many Jaws films - was finally starting to dissipate, calling an end to the stigma attached to the great white shark. 'They don't hunt humans' they told us 'it's hammerheads you have to worry about'.

Just as we're beginning to believe this tripe, one of the monsters of the deep rears his ugly head to make an unprovoked attack on an Amercian TV presenter. Yes it's scary and yes it's very very cool.
