Man Pets and Plays With Sharks

They say dogs are a man’s best friend, but Jim Abernethy prefers to spend his time petting SHARKS. Shark expert Jim, from Florida, USA, has been swimming with sharks since his childhood and now can actually pet them like a dog – calling them ‘gentle giants’. Jim, 61, runs eco-tourism shark trips, for over 40 years, where tourists have the chance to swim with the massive predators and get to know them. And they can meet the sharks that Jim refers to by name and will come over for a friendly scratch from their favourite human.
