Huge shark swims by scientists at Atlantic as they discover colorful new fish

In the midst of discovering a brand new species of fish, a team or researchers missed a huge shark swimming above them deep in the Atlantic Ocean.

The California Academy of Sciences researchers, Luiz Rocha and Hudson Pinheiro, were single-mindedly focused on a new species of fish and the bright pink and green trees on the Verge.

The entire incident had been caught on video by their cameraman Mauritius Bell, who is trying to keep the old 10-foot long six-eye shark swimming calmly above them.

"Look at the shark!" Says their camera operator.

All three divers speak in a "Alvin and the Chipmunks" voice that is reportedly created by the "rebreather gas mixture," which includes some helium, that they use.

The bluntnose sixgill shark, also known as the cow shark, can grow to 26 feet in length and is listed as "near threatened" by the International Union for Conservation, according to Wikipedia.
