A kayaker in Florida has a close encounter with a huge Shark.  Check out the video to see this massive encounter.

So now that I have your attention, I have to tell you that the massive shark in the video is a Basking Shark, a relatively harmless shark.  While the basking shark is the 2nd largest species of shark, second only to the Whale Shark, it is a filter feeder. 

The upclose and personal encounter with the shark occurred off Panama City, Fla.  The Kayak in the video was 14 feet long and you'll notice how small it seems in comparison to the massive creature.
