Having a whale of a dine.

A FEARLESS photographer snaps a magnificent whale as its gigantic jaws are about to snap shut on a shoal of unfortunate sardines.

Doug Perrine and fellow diver Brandon Cole were in the middle of a dangerous feeding frenzy off the coast of Cabo San Lucas in Mexico.

American Doug feared he'd bitten off more than he could chew when he was almost chomped by one of the Bryde's whales, which grow up to 42ft in length. He said: "I was struck by a whale twice and I nearly went into its mouth."

3 SKIPPERS are using an iPhone app to locate and avoid 70-ton North Atlantic right whales. The animals are endangered and two die each year after being hit by boats.
