If you read the article you will find the paddler is experienced in this sort of research. I believe his name is "One Leg Pete".

Great White Trust?

Oxymoron of the month, albeit probably unintentional, has to be great white trust. From all I've read that's about the last thing applicable to the breed.

The photo does remind me of Marlin Perkins from the St Louis zoo, on his program "Wild Kingdom". Marlin, in his immaculately fitted and pressed bush jacket, would describe how Stan, suitably muscled and clad in his Sears working khakis, would drop out of our helicopter onto a thirty foot python and wresle it into submission with six feet of rope and a burlap bag. I always had the sneaking suspicion that Marlin was enjoying a dry Beefeater martini somewhere before Stan even hit the ground.

Great photo.

Gives new meaning to the phrase "Please keep arms and legs inside the boat."

Reminds me of a line from Crocodile Dundee,

Mik is in the NYC bar, swapping stories with the locals, one has just told a whopper when Mik comes back with one of how he'd shot a big salt water croc and when they opened her up she had a Filipino canoe in it with two guys still paddling.

I think this one comes a tad closer. WAaaay too close for me.

I saw the movie Jaws and wouldnt sit on a crapper for a week.
