A happy story about sharks and people...together! After a decade of interviewing sharks researchers and divers I've see a common trend - we haven't given these predators enough credit! According to the rescuers this shark seemed cooperative, allowing the divers to handle it, cut away the rope, and even "showing appreciation" after. What's your opinion; did the shark understand it was being helped such as is reported with so many whale rescue stories?
Note: Two species of shark appear in this short video; oceanic white tips (at the beginning and end) and dusky sharks.
Buying a custom shark shirt is a great way to support efforts to keep making these videos which are produced with personal funding.
