Swimming with Black Tip Sharks

Many people find these pictures horrifying and terrifying. While in fact, it is not at all. The sharks are very friendly and nice. They do not even care we are there. I even have some scratch in my legs from climbing Wayag and they come no where near me. They just care about the fish meat that we throw as a bait to them.

FYI, only the great white sharks are aggressive to human beings. Other sharks are not. If you check all those scary shark movies, such as jaws, the sharks only become aggressive because their genetics have been altered. Normal sharks do not attack people. So please stop eating shark fins! We, human, are the most dangerous predators.
