    Good idea, what could possibly go wrong?

    Maybe out of the water, they're sweet as puppies?

    People cross the street every day. Sometimes they get hit. Most of the time if they are careful they don't.

    They're pretty harmless in the water too, unless you're a seal or floating on something that looks like one. Trust me, if they ate people, there'd be no one left on the beach.

    I can look both ways before crossing the street. I can also consider the potential risk of petting a wild animal armed with a razored mouth and choose not to do.it.

    I'm not going to go into it but the way the shark is positioned in the water, he would have had to have jammed his arm into it's mouth and held it there for it to get bitten. The guy knows what he's doing. Personally I'd be more scared of a strange dog.

    He probably does know what he's doing. Personally I'm not going to risk something like this happening. I don't care if the chances of it are in the single digits either.

    You should always have a chainsaw ready if you're going to pet a shark.

    That fucking thing was angling to get his arm. Fuck that shit. There's a reason sharks are higher than Lions and Tigers in the food chain.

    Biologically speaking, sharks are actually far more primitive than mammals like lions or Tigers. They're also far less intelligent.

    When it comes to being in the water, the shark is definitely one of the kings of his domain.

    Sharks favorite food are fat fishy sausages.
    Would love to feed a shark one of these.
    Although it woul probably poison the poor shark.

    I've also seen em in that position and a switch flips in their million year old brains, sudden burst of energy and they're grabbing whatever they want in the blink of an eye. Insane torque in that tail.

    Great whites aren't the worst temperament sharks though, especially if you're diving and aren't above them and get mistaken for a seal. There are far more menacing fuckers. But if you're diving and you see a great white casually swim by you, first time you will pretty much have a heart attack. It's the size that's really jarring, plus the mask makes everything underwater look 15% bigger due to light refraction.
