The video above, titled “fighting sharks with Frank Solomon,” was recently posted by YouTube user frog790. While it certainly seems looks like there is some semblance of “fighting” going on in the latter part of the video, it also appears to have potentially been provoked.
Both sharks in the video seem to be somewhat disinterested in Solomon when he first drops into the water. In fact, the shark with the fishing line dragging from his mouth even appears to swim away from Solomon when he approaches him early in the video. It is not until Solomon attempts to approach the second shark that the “fight” takes place.
Fortunately, neither Solomon nor the shark seemed worse for the wear after the encounter, but this is definitely something that should be filed under “Kids, don’t try this at home (or in the ocean).”
