Swimming with Sharks is terrifying, but it's a little less scary when you're in a cage that protects you and keeps the sharks a safe distance away.

As Shaq found out, however, during his appearance on the 30th Anniversary of Shark Week, it can be just as dangerous in a cage as a shark actually got into the cage.

As you can see, Shaq was fine and they got him out of the cage, but clearly they didn't plan on a shark getting into the cage happening.

Despite the frightening experience, though, Shaq said he's going to be back next year and he wants to take on tiger sharks.
