Scientists in Australia have created a wetsuit that helps to prevent shark attacks.

The markings and colours help break up the shape of the surfer so that they can't be perceived by sharks - and if they are, they aren't seen as a meal.

Although nothing can be said to be 100% shark-proof, these scientists believe that people using the 'anti-shark' wetsuits will feel much safer in the water.
