The Shark Whisperer

The Shark Whisperer

This incredible image of shark-whisperer Andre Hartman placing his hand on the nose of a Great White Shark was captured by photographer Doug Perrine, off the coast of South Africa. Hartman is able to 'hypnotize' sharks by tickling their super-sensitive snout region, causing the aggressive animals to become confused by the stimulation.

"This part of the shark's body is loaded with nerve endings, and the creature's sensory system became overloaded from the stimulus," Perrine explained. "The shark seemed to enter a pleasant, but confused state where it was dreamily seeking the source of the stimulus. So there was no trigger for the shark to attack anything."
