Smiling Shark Gives High-Five!


It’s not everyday that we see a smiling shark give a scuba diver a high-five. Eli Martinez, editor of Shark Diver Magazine, was diving in the Caribbean See, off the Bahamas coast, when a laid-back lemon shark swam straight towards him before turning at the last second with her fin outstretched, connecting with his hand.

"At first she was swimming straight towards me, but I didn’t expect her to turn at the last moment,” said Martinez.
"She tapped my palm with her fin like we were high-fiving. Luckily my friend who owns an underwater camera captured it all on film for me to show the grand kids.”
