A 12-foot great white shark showed off it's powerful snacking abilities off the coast of Jacksonville, a sobering reminder that big, hungry sharks are really really cool. 

Last Saturday, fishermen with the Team Buck Rogers Fishing Charters shot the impressive video below of the super predator snacking on a red snapper. 

Owner Jeffrey Schaefer recalled the incident on his website, "Quite an eventful day. We caught more red snapper than we could count, had a Mola Mola follow right behind the engines for 10-15 minutes, and oh yeah, the great white deal. Incredible day. It stands true; you never know what you will see when your on the sea!"
