Rumble / Wild WildlifeThe dark salty waters of the oceans hold a lot of predators. Some we know, some we can’t even imagine, but they are without a doubt far deadlier than predators walking on two or four feet. It’s only natural, we are on their turf and they have been living in that environment for as long as they can remember so they would always come on top.

But no matter the deadliness of the animal, there is only one animal that remains the most feared marine killer among humans, and it’s no other than the <a href="" target="_blank">shark</a>. Undoubtedly there are other bigger and meaner animals in the ocean’s depths, but humankind has grown to truly fear sharks because they have been the number one frequent gruesome killers in the shallow ends of the oceans.

But not all sharks are the same. Admittedly every one of them is after food and will stop at nothing to get to it, but some don’t pose such a threat to humankind. One such animal is the nurse shark. Nurse sharks reach a length of over 10 feet and can weigh as much as 330lbs. Despite having powerful jaws and hundreds of sharp teeth, the nurse shark is gentle in nature and is rarely a threat to humans. Swimmers and divers often encounter them and the sharks will occasionally approach humans, looking for food, or simply due to curiosity.

Despite the low level of risk, this diver’s determination to film the <a href="" target="_blank">feeding frenzy</a> of a group of nurse sharks is making our hairs stand on end. The sharks ignore the diver so he pets them and films them to his heart's content. What would you do in such a situation? Would you even consider entering the water while there are sharks in it?
