A videographer captured the incredible moment a great white shark bit another on the face.

Agnes Yip-Fa was doing a cage dive in Australia's Neptune Islands when the incident occurred.

The dive was a baited one, meaning fish was thrown into the water to attract the sharks, and the bite by the larger shark was reportedly a display of dominance against the smaller one; a kind of 'keep away from my food' warning.

The footage, which we first saw at the Daily Star, was filmed back in 2013 but has resurfaced and is going viral again.



According to Earth Touch News, Agnes said the smaller shark was being "pesky, adding: "He didn't give way to the larger sharks. At the time the footage was shot, the two were going for the bait at the same time, and the smaller one received a warning bite."

The smaller shark is likely to have been fine as the animals have a fantastic capacity to heal with very tough skin.

Ecologist Michelle Jewell said: "We've documented their amazing healing capability with a white shark named 'Prop' who was nearly cut in half by a propeller. This shark survived and is still spotted in South Africa today."
