Woman And 9-Foot Long Shark Are Best Friends

A woman, because of the nature of her job, has managed to make a very unexpected and rather startling wildlife pal. 

Animals are great and magnificent beings, wonderfully designed by the Creator of the universe. They are a consistent and constant source of amazement, always surprising humans with what they can do and how much they seemingly understand. 

A clip posted to YouTube demonstrates how one creature, generally considered a deadly and ferocious being of the ocean, has a surprising capacity for friendship. That’s because Snooty, a 9-foot lemon shark, has struck up an odd friend and fascinating friendship with a woman. 

Rayna, the woman who counts a shark among her friends, says the wild animal recognizes her every time she enters the water. The creature even allows her to pet it, much like a dog.

“Snooty swims right up to me as soon as she sees me,” Rayna says. “And I’ll give her a little treat and a nose rub, and she’s with me for the entire dive.”

Snooty, as mentioned earlier, is a lemon shark. Rayna, in the clip, states those sharks are “the golden retriever of sharks,” stating that they are “the most social shark you’re going to see.”

Rayna claims lemon sharks are “super touchy-feely sharks.”

Rayna, a professional diver, shark videographer and photographer, has no fear of the beings. Even on her days off, she’ll often spend it in the ocean, hanging out with the creatures of the sea.

“Sharks are definitely my favorite companions underwater,” she says.

But lemon sharks aren’t the only breed she encounters during her dives. She named a handful of others she often comes across during these deep-sea diving expeditions.

Rayna and Snooty’s friendship is simply astounding and somewhat confounding. While Snooty looks like a pleasant and friendly creature, it’s safe to say that most people will not be jumping into the ocean to look for a shark to befriend.

Genesis 1:21 “And God created great whales, and every living creature that moves, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good.”
