Alexander Dane Farnham is the host of a Discovery Network digital program entitled Animalist News, which airs on Youtube.com and on the website Revision 3. In a recent episode, Alex tackled a lifelong fear and went diving with the one type of shark he feared most, the tiger shark.
In the video intro, he states that he was absolutely terrified of tiger sharks and viewed them as the meanest of the mean. But with a strong desire to overcome his fear, Alex descended into the Hawaiian waters with a group of experienced shark divers and met his toothy fear head on all without the safety of a shark cage.
Alex didn't see the "meanest shark out there" as he expected but instead, he saw a "majestic animal" and notes that the entire experience left him with a tremendous respect for the tiger shark.
Kudos Alex on overcoming your fear and thank you for sharing your experience with the 'majestic' tiger shark.
