|Nurse shark ejects water in vacationers face.|
Although Corey downplayed the humiliation when he posted the video on Twitter by saying, "Yea... We hugged a shark today. No big deal." But some in the media decided that there was a humorous opportunity to be had with this video. The Telegraph, true to their normal form, went with the headline, "Shark vomits in radio DJ's face."
This appears to be a tawny nurse shark which hunts by getting is's small mouth close to prey and then using its large pharynx as s powerful suction to inhale the prey. But it can also use the same mechanism in reverse when it will shoot a powerful blast of water at anything that it feels threatened by. In this case, Corey was front and center.
