Incredible moment a shark nudges a diver to get him to remove a hook that was stuck in its flesh

Eccles lifted it by the nose to reveal its underbelly where a hook was stuck

The Lemon shark allowed him to fish it out and then it swam away

This is the tender moment a Lemon shark nudged a diver in a gentle plea to get it to remove a hook that was stuck in its flesh.

Diver Josh Eccles was in the water in Jupiter, Florida, with photographer friend Chris Maddeford when the shiver of sharks approached them.

One approached him several times, gently bumping its nose in to his wet suit.

‘Every time it swam by me, it would bump into me a little more. They always bump into us but they don’t bump into us that frequently,’ he told WFLA.

He said he was grateful to have had such a one-on-one encounter with the creature.

‘That was a crazy opportunity, experience to be a part of.’

Lemon sharks are considered non-aggressive towards humans. They are known to bite or attack only if they feel in immediate danger or under threat.

  1. This shows that sharks communicate with each other. The word has gone around that divers can remove hooks and other items. This has happened before.

    For an animal with a small brain sharks seem pretty smart.

  3. Aww boo, this video is now greyed out as well, so I guess it was deleted.

    I hate when youtubers do that (unless Google deleted it, then skew them!)
