MYSTERIOUS FATHOMS BELOW — There are certain things that some of us are curious about but would never want to actually experience first-hand. For example, what would it be like to eat a 72-ounce steak? Or what does lava feel like?

Fortunately, we no longer need to wonder about what it would look like to get eaten by a shark. This new video that sheds a little light on that hypothetical experience.

A conservationist named Zimy Da Kid was shooting footage on the ocean floor when one of the sharks decided that the camera looked kind of edible. What follows is a fascinating journey into the mouth of one of earth's oldest predators.

First, you see the protective membrane cover the shark's eyes just before impact. That's how you know things are about to get dicey.

The shark then chomps on the camera as it passes from the teeth toward the throat. Even though it's a smallish shark, those teeth still look intimidating.

Once inside the mouth, we get a glimpse of how beautiful the gills look — from the INSIDE. Before the camera makes it to the stomach, however, the shark decides to spit it out and go find something that tastes more like dinner and less like an Insta360 ONE X2 action camera.
