Video: great white shark gets gets head stuck in cage

From YouTube user davidwlitchfield comes a video featuring a white shark (Carcharodon carcharias) getting briefly stuck in the lower opening of a surface cage. After bumping into the boat, the shark quickly turns and gets his nose in between the bars of the cage. The diver in the cage is able to push the shark back using his camera allowing the shark to freely swim away.

The video description doesn’t indicate where this encounter took place, but given the time of year (assuming the video was shot recently) and the visibility, my guess would be South Australia.
