Biologist Greg Skomal had a great white shark snap at his feet off the coast of Wellfleet MA

White sharks are known to breach the water, according to the conservancy.

Video released by the Atlantic White Shark Conservancy on social media shows just how close the shark came towards the remarkably calm researcher. It opened its mouth right at my feet...

"Ho! Holy crap", Skomal yells, as the shark falls away.

Video uploaded to YouTube by the Atlantic White Shark Conservancy shows the researcher on a boat in waters off the USA state of MA. Beachgoers are being urged to exercise caution due to at least one shark lurking in the area.

MA state biologist Greg Skomal was standing on the pulpit of the research boat last week when the shark made the leap, according to the Boston Globe.

But as he looks around for sharks a great white rises from the water, right underneath the platform with its jaws open before diving back under.

"White sharks are wild and unpredictable animals", they said.

Such hunting manoeuvres can see a shark leap up to 12ft out of the water at speeds of 40mph.

In a video shot on King's boat and posted online Monday by the Atlantic White Shark Conservancy, a great white shark jumps out of the water underneath the boat's pulpit, where state shark biologist Dr. Greg Skomal stands.

Fantastic footage shows a scientist's dangerously close encounter with a 12-foot great white shark. "This is a good reminder of the importance of not becoming complacent and always staying vigilant when in or on the water".
