Swimming With Friendly Sharks: Video

By Robert Paul Reyes

"A diver off the coast of Florida captured video of his encounter with a group of large silky sharks that allowed him to get close and even stroke their backs.

The video, filmed in waters off Jupiter, Fla., shows the man`s perspective as he encounters the group of curious sharks, which take turns approaching him.:

Because the sharks declined to show aggression toward the diver, and instead allowed him to touch their backs and fins, he described them as friendly.

I am not an expert on sharks, but I realize that only a moron would describe these deadly predators as "friendly."

If the diver`s suit had been pricked and the sharks smelled blood, the friendly sharks would have torn him to pieces.

I don`t mind watching these friendly sharks in a video, but you will never catch me swimming with them.
