Discovery Network’s Summer tradition of Shark Week has come to an end, but thanks to YouTube and VideoAmigo, there’s still a lot more content to sink your teeth into.
For those still craving footage of nature’s apex predators, here is a quick guide of The Top Shark Videos on YouTube by the number of lifetime views.
To find the top of the food chain VideoAmigo spent some time in our “Sharks” Topic.
This allowed us to pull out the top videos out of nearly 20,000 videos on the topic.
Top 5 Most Viewed Shark Videos of All Time on YouTube
*View counts are as of August 5, 2019
#5: Great White Cage Breach Accident – 32.7 Million Views*
This clip is possibly the scariest and most shocking of the Top YouTube Shark videos, showing a sizable Great White Shark getting inside the cage with a diver inside!
#4: Virtual Shark Dive 360 Degrees – 32.8 Million Views*
This unique, experiential clip was likely designed with a VR viewing experience in mind. It allows us to see a computer-generated simulation of a free dive where we encounter natures top predator.
#3: Baywatch Shark Attack Clip – 35 Million Views*
This clip brings some necessary comedic relief to this Topic in only the way Baywatch can. With its overdramatized slow-motion screams, too intense close-ups and stock shark footage, this is a must-watch clip.
#2: Cape Cod Great White Rescue – 42 Million Views*
In possibly the most fascinating Great White clip on YouTube, this video shows the compassion humans can have for even the fiercest of predators. When a Great White is beached on the shores of Cape Cod, bystanders quickly react to get the shark back in the water and save its life.
#1: Grouper Fish Eats a 4 Foot Shark – 67 Million Views*
The number one clip in this Topic by views is an unexpected one. When a small shark ends up on a fisherman’s line, a massive grouper takes the opportunity for a meal. Role versal in nature proves to fascinate viewers here.
Note: This video link is not broken… that is what the thumbnail looks like… maybe Gimbb14 needs to spend some time with our Thumbnail Explorer Tool»
Disclaimer: There is one shark-related video with a higher view count than our #1, but it has been eliminated due to the content being complete click-bait with no real shark footage at all. If you MUST see it you can at the link directly below (but don’t waste your time!)
