Most of us don't get the opportunity to do something as adventurous as these divers. Even if we did get the opportunity, a lot of us wouldn't be willing to swim in an open area with sharks. This takes a lot of guts. A groups of divers had an interesting sight at the end of their dive. Eight large reef sharks appeared and circled this group of divers. The sharks started getting curious and were slowly becoming aggressive. The sharks made several passes, inching closer and closer as time went on. Suddenly, one large shark came up from under the diver and bumped his snout into the diver's groin. That can be frightening, this shark is starting to get more comfortable with his surroundings.

The diver had his camera recording the whole time, from watching this recording, we can see the shark fill the screen as the diver uses the GoPro to push the shark away. This shark is getting a little too close for comfort! This didn't phase the shark. It continued to try and make many more attempts toward the diver. The diver remained vertical, facing the shark, causing the shark to avoid making any more contact. This shark may only be bumping the diver because it is curious, but this is still frightening. This can also be a sign of a hungry shark, which is not safe to be around. Sharks are rarely dangerous to humans, but when a shark is able to come that close to you, it can be scary.

Have you ever seen a shark close up like this before? Let us know in the comment section down below.
