Another happy bull shark and my good friend Tubee holding it's fin - like two good friends shaking hands ! ^_^ Way Fijian dive guides interact with sharks always amazes me. Looking at them one can think that they deal not with fearsome lethal predator, but with some cute lovely pet. Simply amazing ! ^_^

Green container which you can see on this image contains fish heads which are used as bait (or treat, depends how you look at it). Fijian way of diving with sharks is based on idea of hand feeding, as opposed to chumming water. This helps to avoid frenzy - one don't want dozens of huge bulls to go crazy - and to establish natural hierarchy with biggest shark eating first and others doing they turns at their time. It's incredible ritual to witness !
