WATCH Shark Diver's Arm-Reaching Encounter With Great White

A diver in Mexico reached out and touched a great white shark on the nose as a fellow diver held out bait for the shark.

The scuba divers were in the waters off the coast of Guadalupe Island, Mexico, according to Caters News Agency, which licensed photographs of the encounter.

The photographs, taken by 47-year-old Moscow resident Dmitry Vasyanovich, show a team of three scuba divers reeling the shark in with bait before one of the divers taps the shark on its nose.
