If you slow the video down, you can see the wide-open mouth gaping just below the researcher's boots.

The Boston Globe identified the man who was just inches from the shark's mouth as a MA state biologist named Greg Skomal.

The Atlantic White Shark Conservancy, which posted the footage on its Facebook page, is actively involved in researching great whites, filling the large gaps in our knowledge about the species which is listed as vulnerable to extinction on the Red List of endangered creatures.

- A researcher was startled when a great white shark jumped out from under the water, right beneath him. It has since gone viral with over two lakh views and thousands of shares. Mr Skomal can be heard saying in the video.

Greg Skomal, a marine fisheries biologist at Martha's Vineyard Research Station, recently experienced a once-in-a-lifetime event when a shark leapt out of the water with its jaws wide open, inches from his arm. "It came right up and opened its mouth right at my feet", Skomal says in the video.

It's not clear why the shark breached or whether this was a type of attack behavior.

The violence came after two fighters from the military wing of Hamas, which governs Gaza, were killed by Israeli fire on Tuesday. Later, Palestinians fired about 70 rockets across the border, and Israeli aircraft struck at least a dozen militant targets.

The conservancy said scientists received multiple reports of breaching white sharks from fishermen and boaters - but encounters are rare. "White sharks are wild and unpredictable animals", they said, warning everyone to stay vigilant while in water.

Wellfleet is located about 34 miles from Cape Cod, Massachusetts, where lifeguards ushered beachgoers out of the water on July 27 after a great white shark was spotted devouring a seal near a group of surfers, according to Twitter user Ken Martin, who filmed the incident.
