    From the comparison of the 2 shark teeth as compared to the Federal Reserve Note width at 2 1/2 inches this shark was most likely 19 to 20 foot long give or take. Also probably a female as they are larger. The bite of the shark unto the kayak was most likely a probing bite. Normally a great white would knock the kayak along with its rider right out of the water if it mistook them for sea lion. In this case it is more likely that the shadow - silohuette and /or movement of the kayak did not quite appear to this shark as a sea lion and it was more cautious. In any event these are two lucky kayakers.

    Here's a tip: If you make a pendant out of those teeth, be sure to completely cover the edges with gold or silver or something. Otherwise those serrated teeth will nick and cut you with every move.

    He probably dropped a load of poop into his kayak and the shark didn't like the taste.

    Exploratory bite. The shark was curious, nothing more. Cool that the diver got two toothy souvenirs to take home.

    lol "I could have been injured." I think he meant to say "i could have been killed or eaten." i bet that was a powerful experience though holy moly!

    Glad you didn't get hurt!
    Pretty cool you each got a souvenir!

    They have a cool, albeit scary, story to tell. The shark teeth souvenirs would make great necklaces.

    Both scary and funny. That's cool it left some teeth.

    Sharks gotta eat.

    Humans are no longer at the top of the food chain as soon as you swim in the ocean.

    The shark was curious about the kayak, so it took an exploratory bite, determined it was not interesting, and swam off. If it had "attacked" the kayak, you wouldn't be able to paddle it to shore afterwards.
