Vampires, ghosts, werewolves. Meh. When you get a verified photo of one, call me.

Meanwhile, for my money, photos of a great white shark, swimming six feet behind some guy on a surfboard is about as scary a situation as I can imagine. Andy Johnston was on his surfboard, southeast of Perth, Australia on September 21st, when cars started honking their horns to alert him to a big shark near him. Everybody else got to safety. Andy kept paddling.

Andy is still with us, but new photos have come out to show exactly how close the shark was.
