June 19, 2008: Shark & Fisherman

I'm not sure if this is bogus or not, but I thought the pictures were pretty neat. I suppose it could be true.

It's a dolphin, not a shark.

I wonder if he ever gets in the water and swims with her.



DucksNuts  Wednesday Jun 18 09:45 PM

I remember the story in the first pic....its real, the dude was doing a story and that was the least intrusive way of following the Great Whites.

They said they often followed them and seemed really curious, but werent aggressive at all.



Clodfobble  Wednesday Jun 18 10:43 PM

Yeah, but the third picture is from a totally different time/place/story.



Aliantha  Wednesday Jun 18 10:59 PM

I have more pictures which are supposedly the same shark and fisherman.

Here.

Hard to Believe

I thought sharks were preprogrammed to KILL, KILL, KILL. Hard to believe a shark could be a friend. You need to find a photo of a man and his pet rattlesnake. Here pet it, stroke it, sleep with it.



Aliantha  Thursday Jun 19 12:33 AM

Well there have been pictures of snakes and furry little animals on this very forum before. They were friends.

I suppose stranger things could happen.



zippyt  Thursday Jun 19 12:46 AM

Ya swim with sharks y going to get BIT !!!
jst like the dude that Lived with bears and got EATEN !!!!



xoxoxoBruce  Thursday Jun 19 01:05 AM

The first picture is real, but it's a researcher, not a fisherman.

The second picture, from the french magazine, is bullshit. It may have some basis in fact, but not related to any of the pictures.

Notice the toothy pictures are by Michael Scholl, of the Great White Shark trust. Smithsonian Magazine just did a feature article of Scholl and his work.

1) Dolphins' tails are horizontal. Sharks' tails are vertical.
2) Dolphins don't have gills. They breathe air to get oxygen to their brains, just like me and y ...um... just like me.

After gaining the shark's confidence, Arnold invited a few friends over for dinner.

Smithsonian - one of the best magazines for the sheer variety of topics it covers. Anyone who reads Smithsonian must be a decent fellow.

That shark just might be responsible for some of those feet washing up in the other thread.

jillybean4  Friday Jun 20 01:30 PM

this story is totally false. read it on snopes. the pics aren't even the same shark or guy. It was first done as an April Fools joke than translated into english from french. looks cool though.

That is a whale shark being cut into steaks, there. Didn't realize people ate them. They are filter feeders and not carnivores.
