It's almost impossible to make it through this video without laughing a little at the commentary (could it be a great white?!), but who wouldn't get this excited after seeing a 'sharky' lurker in a lake?

The footage was captured by fishermen on Lake Macquarie in New South Wales, the largest salt water lagoon in Australia, where a juvenile great white shark has been hanging out. The shark isn't trapped (the lake is linked to the ocean by the Swansea Channel), so locals have been motoring out to get a 'great white selfie' before it returns to sea (protip: although sharks are not deadly man-eaters, leaning out of your boat to harass them is a great way to injure yourself).
