Oh, my god. This is some pretty intense damage right here. That's tough paint. Reporter: Scientists Greg scomo has studied them for 30 years and never saw anything like this before. We don't know why the drone is so attractive to the shark in terms of whether it's predatory behavior or some level of Territo territoriality it's exhibiting. All our observations of them attacking nick occur at or near the surface and here we have observations occurring at 300 feet deep. Never ever been seen before.
