Video: Nurse Shark Confuses Snorkeler for Food
OutdoorHub Reporters 12.12.17
Nurse sharks aren’t known to be an aggressive species when compared to their toothy relatives. But with that being said, this video shows a nurse shark display some pretty unusual behavior.
The video, which was posted on LiveLeak, shows a woman snorkeling in the ocean just below the surface of the water, which apparently made her look like something a nurse shark wants to eat.
Here is the explanation of what happened followed by the video, according to LiveLeak:
“Mid snorkeling with the sharks I felt a whoosh of water, something clamp down on my arm and assumed my husband was playing a prank of me. Less than a second later I realized how much it hurt and looked past where my goggles were blocking my side vision to see the shark (bigger than myself) latched on to my arm. I pulled it away/the combination of the shark releasing and got out of there.”
