11:56 pm
and -- >> jimmy: what does that mean? >> that means an apex predator is above them so they're clearing the waters for a a bigger shark. so i kind of like go, what -- [ laughter ] --what's going on right now? >> jimmy: but are you the apex? >> not i'm not the -- no. not at all.

[ laughter ] >> i had two choices. the boat was behind me, and technically safety was behind me and so were several people yelling, "come this way, come back!"
11:57 pm
>> jimmy: you can only hear it through your snorkel. >> i wasn't hearing it. it was all just visual at this point. >> jimmy: what do you do if a a big shark comes at you? >> well, he did. he came straight at me. or she came straight at me. and what you're supposed to do is slow down your heart rate and sort of just stay calm. and you -- [ laughter ] >> jimmy: ocean. what do i really do? >> this is actually -- >> jimmy: slow down my heart rate. yeah, yeah, yeah. >> this is actually serious science. >> jimmy: how do you do that even? already my heart -- i can't do that. you can do that? >> i held my breath. i kind of crossed my arms. i let the shark know that i wasn't prey. i just sort of stared into his eyes -- [ laughter ] and -- i'm dead -- i'm not joking. >> jimmy: you can do that. you're zac efron. i mean that's what you do. [ laughter ] he calms the shark. he's a shark whisperer. he calms down a shark. [ laughter ] you go, "hey, come on, i'm zac efron."
