This is a video of 'shark whisperer' Ocean Ramsey (whose mom is rumored to be a mermaid) swimming with a great white shark off the coast of Mexico. At one point she even grabs a hold of its dorsal fin and gets pulled along for a little while. The actions of a sane person? No. The actions of a woman with balls so big it's amazing she looks so feminine in a wetsuit? Yes.
"There is an instinctive fear, knowing what the animals are capable of, but it's hard to describe what it's like to be in the presence of such a magnificent animal," she said. "I felt extremely privileged to have such a close encounter."
It is estimated that there are fewer than 350 great whites swimming along the Pacific Coast and fewer than 3,500 left worldwide.
Oliphant said he and Ramsey want the video to touch as many people as possible given the shark's plight.
I've actually had the pleasure of diving in a shark cage around great whites before, and I've got to admit-- "You're lying." I've got to admit that I'm lying. I've done almost nothing adventurous in my life and will regret virtually every decision I've ever made when I'm on my deathbed. "What do you say we make that sooner than later?" COME AT ME, BRO.
Hit the jump for a couple more shots and the video.
Thanks to Josh D. and A, who will both stick to swimming with the dolphins like normal, God-fearing tourists.
