Sharks are known to swallow almost anything, but a $15,000 camera?

That's what one 14-foot long tiger shark tried to do when she grabbed hold of divers' gear. Luckily, the shark dropped the 30-pound piece of equipment within a hundred feet of the film crew, who were shooting footage at Tiger Beach in the Bahamas.

"We've known this shark for several years," filmmaker George Schellenger told CNN. "Her name is Emma."

The divers were working on an upcoming documentary called Shark Obsession when Emma swiped the camera and swam off. After she let go, the equipment was recovered without any damage.
