         Whew!  The sharks had just been fed?  
           Bet that was on everybody's minds! (besides how fast they could tread water)  ;D      
          Great story,  thanks Tommy!   :st

I watched a bit of that on the news yesterday as well--I think I heard a mention that the sharks wouldn't have been likely to attack the visitors anyway because they were already very used to the divers' company--lucky for the party.   8)

Thanks Tommy  :)

[blue]The sharks were probably more scared of a bunch of fat tourists falling into their domain than the people were of the sharks.
;D

However, I certainly would not like that experience. I would definitely die of shock before getting wet.

 You know how the shark is unbelievably huge. :s3
   
 Pretty cool looking picture though! ;D

Tommy,

  The photo is a hoax. It's a composite photo that was circulated via email starting in August of 2001. Click on the link for the full story;
