GUADALUPE ISLAND, Coast of Mexico (CNN) — Dramatic video from Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution shows several great white sharks taking a bite of a shark camera studying them in open water.

A group of the institution engineers were studying great whites off the coast of Mexico when the sharks suddenly turned on the cameras.

Their six-camera submersible, meant to follow and track the fish in the wild, gives a frighteningly up close view of the great whites.

Scientist say the sharks attacked the camera the same way they hunt seals in the area, but maybe they just like their privacy.
