In footage captured in 2013 from tests performed in Mexico, a great white shark can be viewed in full, terrifying HD video attacking the SharkCam. The sharks can be seen lurking in the depths below the AUV and them swimming up rapidly to bite the robot, similar to how they hunt for seals, according to the Discovery Channel. Not only was the shark attack caught on video, but the SharkCam itself was left with a number of teeth marks in the hull of the robot. See the video below.
