This Shark comes to cuddle with him whenever he goes diving and this has been going on for 10 years. Meet Rick Anderson, an Australian man who calls a female Port Jackson shark his friend, saying she comes to cuddle with him whenever she sees him. “I started playing with her about seven years ago when she was just a pup about 6 inches long.”
Anderson’s friend is a 6-foot female Port Jackson shark. She doesn’t have a name, but Anderson recognizes her by her markings.
Rick’s Dive School is a Scuba Diving International Resort Facility run by Rick Anderson – a Diving Instructor with over 20+ years of experience. He loves the ocean and everything in it – as seen by this amazing video of him with and old dive friend: a Port Jackson shark! Check his website for more information.

“I approached her carefully so as not to spook her, then began to gently pat her. Once she got used to me, I would cradle her in my hand and talk soothingly to her through my regulator.”
