Bad Ideas: Snorkeler Gives Shark Butterfly Kisses

March 26, 2019

This is a short video of a snorkeler (who presumably considers himself a shark whisperer while everyone else considers him a poor decision maker who should probably watch Grizzly Man) giving a relatively large shark some butterfly kisses. I mean, sure, the cleaner fish above the shark's eye does make it look like it has cartoon eyebrows and thus much friendlier, but there's still no reason for this. You can even see the shark's eyelid close like it was about to attack. But what do I know? I'm just a man who doesn't believe in taking unnecessary risks with his own life. "Says the guy who makes his own 'extra-extra-extra strength' boner pills at home." I said unnecessary, and they're not for sale if that's what you're getting at.

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to Allyson S, who agrees even Aquaman doesn't kiss sharks.

    This guy should try again with a tiger shark. That's safe.

    Looks like a tiger shark to me, though the pattern isn't very visible.

    Copy/paste: I'm no shark expert. I thought this little guy was a Mako. Tiger sharks are responsible for more fatal shark attacks in the world than any other shark species.

    Non-copy/paste: Also notable, bull sharks, tiger sharks and short-finned Makos all look pretty much the same from above.

    That is in fact a tiger shark, and they are actually quite docile.

    Huh... I'm no shark expert. I thought this little guy was a Mako. Tiger sharks are responsible for more fatal shark attacks in the world than any other shark species.

    Why does this look like it was done/shot with the intention of uploading to Instagram?

    That's one sad shark.
