Have you hugged your shark today?

The full grown shark appears to enjoy belly rubs and going limp (known as tonic immobility, a commonly reported phenomenon in sharks) in the arms of the aquarium keeper at the Aquarium Des Lagons Nouvelle-Calédonie (New Caledonia). Aquarium staff says this shark is very friendly and often seeks the attention of divers who enter the tank.

Don’t you wish that cleaning algae was always this fun?
