While handling sharks in general is not advised, some people take the risk and go to the extreme. Two divers who took the risk were shocked with their discoveries.

These divers in the Bahamas have been photographed putting a Caribbean reef shark into a state of tonic immobility, which is like a trance. They claim to have done this by stroking the receptors on the shark’s nose, which causes it to stay still and relax for up to 15 minutes.

Caribbean reef sharks can measure up to 10ft long and have been known to occasionally attack humans. With two filmed mastering the skill some say they are completely out of their minds. Even though the risk is great some say it is worth the discovery?

So in honor of shark week what do you think? Is the trick worth the risk?
