Drone Captures Boy Jumping In Ocean, Sharks Appearing

January 5, 2018


This is some drone footage from a beach in the Bahamas of a young boy jumping in the water to play, and four sharks immediately closing in on his location. Apparently the drone operator, who could see the sharks on his video screen, yelled at the boy to get out of the water, which he did. Anybody know what kind of sharks those are? Could they have actually done some damage? I have no clue personally, they look pretty small to me but that doesn't mean they won't try nibbling your toes. Maybe they just wanted to play Marco Polo. Man, I would kill to be sitting on a beach sipping a cocktail served in a coconut right now. Close your eyes and imagine that. Nice, isn't it? Is my bathing suit too skimpy? "You aren't wearing one." My my -- I like the way you imagine! And do you like what you see? "No I do not." You sure? "Positive." Open your eyes, this exercise is over and your imagination sucks.

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to Alexandria, who agrees they probably just wanted to make a friend with legs so he could bring them food they haven't tried before, like hamburgers and hotdogs.

    Can't remember the species off hand, but those are harmless sharks... shit, they do a fucking 'shark show' there... they just thought it was show time. https://www.youtube.com/wat...

    Sharks (like most predators) will size up their prey...for adults, I wouldn't worry. If I were a <80 pound kid, I'd worry.

    Good solve detective.

    I've been scuba diving with these kinds of sharks in Belize. You might get accidentally bitten if you stick your hand in their mouth and force their jaws closed. Or if you flail around among their food while they're feeding.

    Nurse shark?

  • Konstantin

    Yeah, that's what they looked like to me. Harmless.

  • Bling Nye

    Sounds right.

  • Big Dog on Krampus

    maybe they are used to being fed by tourists from the dock and interacting with people too

  • Bling Nye

    They definitely are, check out the video I linked, it's locals drawing the sharks in for tourists to gawk over. It's at the same beach.

    Interesting tourism plan. Bait the sharks to come. Send in the tourist swimmers. See if Gary Larson is around the catch the moment.
