    Tickling a shark

    Hi Folks just watched the Documentary "THE SHARKMAN" on TV here in UK
    from which the Photograph originates.
    Really amazing (not forgetting the brave Cameramen too).
    the Guy in the photograph at the end of the film swims with a Great White without that protective suit!!
    Watch out for the programme if it has not come your way already.
    regards john boy.

    I hav'nt seen the documentary, but if the picture shows the average lengths of the GREAT WHITE sharks around that sharkman, than I have to say that these are very small sharks.
    I won't copy what the guy is doing there, but I have had a number of sharks in my hands as well .....knowing that they were not dangerous at all.
    My divingclub members called me a dare-devil (which I'm not !) but it's a matter of knowing the creatures.
    Also seasnakes .......like Rhoody stated already.......seen a lot of them, filmed them and followed them through the water.
    Never any problem... even not any attack movement.

    Great White

    Sorry for any misunderstanding Jellyfish
    You are correct about the Photograph and the size of Shark
    However it was at a different location, coast of South Africa (I think) at the end of the progamme that he swims and touches the nose of a Great White.Infact he was surrounded by about six of them at one point (must be mad!)
    regards JB
