We have already ensured that each animal can become man’s best friend. But generally in such cases we are talking about cats, dogs and other pets. However, our hero in today’s story met an exotic and dangerous predator, who eventually became best friends with him.
Rick Anderson is a diving instructor from Australia. Every time he dives into the water, he meets his friend, an Australian bull shark almost six feet long. The marine predator has no name, but Rick recognizes it by its color:
I started playing with her about seven years ago when she was a puppy about six inches tall. I approached her carefully so as not to scare her and then began to gently caress her. Once she got used to me, I cradled her in my hand and spoke reassuringly to her through my controller.
Since then, the shark began to recognize Rick and nothing to hug him every time she “felt” him.
Humans have been diving for 27 years. He runs a diving school and hopes his friendship with bull sharks will make people stop treating them like monsters or killers.
They are completely non-aggressive sharks unless you grab hold of their tail, in which case, like any animal, they will try to escape.
Anderson is not the first person to find a common language with dangerous predators. Previously, we told you about a diver who helped a whale shark untie the fishing line wrapped around its body. The sea giant swam towards the diver and “asked” for his help.
These incredible stories have shown us that even predators can become your friends if you treat them well! Take care of all the animals – do no harm.
