The word “Shark” strikes fear into the hearts of many beachgoers. We have all seen the movies, sharks are bloodthirsty creatures. But, wait, not all of them are vicious creatures, and not everything we see in the movies is real. In fact, humans kill close to 75 million sharks a year just to eat some soup made from shark fins.
Rick Anderson has a shark for a friend. She is not a great white shark or a hammerhead – she is a 6-foot long Port Jackson shark.
Anderson has not given her a name, he knows her by her markings. She lives off the coast of Nobbys Beach in New South Wales, Australia. Anderson has known this particular shark for about seven years.
Back then, she was 6 inches long! Over time, the shark has grown accustomed to Anderson, and he can hold her in his arms. One thing you would never expect – they cuddle!
