I saw Jaws at entirely too young of an age. The film terrified me, but it also sparked a lifelong obsession with sharks, particularly Great Whites (the species in the movie). For decades I fantasized about climbing into a cage and seeing one up close. It was on my bucket list. I once had the opportunity to cage-dive in shark-infested waters, but passed it up because “it had to be a Great White.” Even though one attacks a cage in the film, that was fiction, or so I thought. Then I saw this (skip to 1:40).
