Cave freedive - I pet a pyjama shark in the dark

Got this clip a while back in chilly water - it was about 12 m deep - no fish in the cave so I interacted a little with these essentially harmless pyjama sharks instead - biggest risk is the fright you get if they swim into your legs while seeking the scent of fishblood.



I have seen them attack reefed up fish in caves - their teeth are minute and would not do much in the line of ripping off a finger - more like graze the skin at most.
They are fun little critters.
