Man high-fives shark


If we were to rank sea-dwelling creatures for their happy-go-lucky disposition, sharks would definitely sit right at the bottom of the list.

Known for their bad temper and inability to take a joke, they wouldn't be cropping up on our dream underwater dinner party guest-list.

But maybe we were wrong.

This astonishing image shows the very brave Eli Martinez making friends with a man-eating lemon shark. Apparently the surprisingly laid-back fish swam straight towards the Texan diver before turning at the last second to offer her fin for a palm-slap.

Dolphins, you might have some competition.
