VW Beetle Interacts With Sharks

Here at autoevolution, we are big on inter-species communication, so much so that we’d say a VW Beetle interacting with sharks, the most deadly creatures of the ocean, is a good thing.
But why did the Bug get into the water? The reason is that in celebration of Discovery Channel's 25th Anniversary of Shark Week that kicks off this Sunday, sponsored the build of a Beetle-shaped cage.

We just can’t wait to see what this strange shark protective device, so when we spotted this video of it in action, we knew we had to bring it to your attention.

Marine biologists are strange folk, but this Australian shark expert, Luke Tipple, has a very contagious enthusiasm. He and his team put together the red shark cage shaped like a Beetle in just three weeks. It’s amazing considering it’s got wheels, headlights, mirrors and other components. What puzzles us is the fact that sharks can attack him from the top, since there’s a huge hole there.
