Naaw, all this shark wants is a cuddle at the bottom of the sea

Ok, so she maybe a professional shark handler, but still, Cristina Zenato really does seem to have the magic touch. Watch this video to see her in the Bahamas, with a Caribbean reef shark at her side. No Jaws-like scenarios here. The shark just stays by Zenato’s side and allows her to pat it just like a puppy! While the sharks Zenato is swimming with are wild, she’s been swimming with them for 20 years, so they’ve built a relationship. Don’t try this at home… or in the ocean!
