Someone's snappy: Jaws-dropping moment deadly Tiger shark tears £11,000 camera from the grasp of a petrified photographer
Diver Miguel Lasa, 49, was swimming without a cage when the Tiger shark approached
Deadly shark grabbed the specialist, £11,000 camera and swam off
Luckily, it dropped the equipment 100 metres away on the sea floor in the Bahamas
Tiger sharks are the world's second most dangerous breed - just behind the great white
'It was a great experience but I wouldn't do it again as it was too dangerous,' says Lasa
This snappy shark was clearly not in the mood for a close-up, snatching one petrified photographer's camera straight out of his arms before swimming off into the distance with it.
After posing for several pictures during a diving expedition in the Bahamas, the toothy tyrant obviously decided enough was enough.
Swimming up to the horrified photographer, the Tiger shark grabbed the expensive camera in his ferocious jaws.
It then calmly swam off with the £11,000 piece of kit.
Thief: As the other sharks move away, one stays close to the diver and eyes up the camera
It's mine now! The Tiger shark makes off with the £11,000 piece of kit held tightly in his grasp
Expensive steal: The divers said the equipment, which has arms and strobes attached, was quite easy for the shark to pick-up in his jaws

That shark must feel contrite. It looks as if he’s filled with remoras.
Miguel is an idiot.
LOVE this seal. I guess the seals have to be TOUGH to make it in Antarctica.
Crazy SOB is swimming around down there surrounded by sharks; he’s lucky the camera was all that got bitten.
