Most scuba divers have encountered sharks of various kinds while diving. The nurse shark is by far, the friendliest and most curious of all the sharks. A welcome sight for divers, these sharks follow closely behind and occasionally interact with them. They are very curious about the divers and are always hopeful for a scrap of food. Occasionally, they will swim up face to face with people. It is at moments like these that it is easy to see why they are the puppies of the deep.

    Amazing footage! If I haven't felt their gummy teeth myself, I wouldn't believe the title, but they really are harmless, great vid!

      Thank's for sharing these pleasant videos, I have always enjoyed scuba diving, just can't quite afford to do it anymore. I'd like to see more if you have them. Thank's again.

          David, Thank's for the prompt reply. I'm looking for the 'link' you mentioned and can't seem to find it, I have subscribed . I clicked on 'Wild Creatures' is that the correct 'link'? Thank's.

      I've filmed almost all of them. My wife took the camera a few times. The elephants are from footage recorded by a friend and we shared the earnings. :) Thanks Bob
