|Emma the tiger shark takes an interest in a photographer|
Emma is a 14 foot tiger shark that has been frequenting Tiger Beach in the Bahamas since the early 2000's. She has become so well known, she even has her own Facebook page.
Several of the guides who bring divers to Tiger Beach are quite comfortable handling the mature tiger shark and there have been numerous videos over the years showing guides handling the large shark.
|Emma the 14 foot tiger shark getting a head rub|
In this short video, Emma takes a particular interest in one of the photographers and he eventually drops his camera in order to give the large tiger shark a head rub. He also gently ushers the shark into a roll which Emma seems to accept without much resistance. Having apparently enough, we then see her swim off.
The video was posted by Dave Baker and is just over 30 seconds in length.
