Imagine you’re swimming in the ocean, taking a look at a stunning patch of coral. Suddenly, a large predator swims between your legs.
That scenario turned into a striking reality for one diver who had stopped to record some eels in the water.
In the video below, posted on April 20, 2017, a diver is bobbing in the water, holding his camera up to a beautiful animal habitat. He is trying to capture a few moray eels as they stick their bodies out of the coral.
Little does he know, his nature video is about to take an unexpected turn.
Just as he zooms in closer, something swishes underneath, pushing him up. As the diver glides back to the spot where he initially was, he realizes that a nurse shark just slipped between his legs.
He watches carefully as the predator swims forward, around the coral, and back toward him.
Thankfully, this is just a nurse shark, so he is not aggressive and remains completely calm around the diver after a scary introduction. It actually seems like the curious shark is hungry for the limelight instead!
He whips his body around and steals the show. The shark’s presence is both a surprise and a much-appreciated treat.
Check out this shark’s cameo in the video below, and please SHARE if his bold move takes you by surprise, as well!
