Leopard Shark Enjoys Belly Rub

Leopard Shark Enjoys Belly Rub

It is a comforting move more associated with pet dogs than fish. But this leopard shark proved that it's not just pups that enjoy a belly rub from time to time.

Captured on camera at an aquarium believed to be in France, a technician found the leopard shark's sweet spot while carrying out some maintenance tasks in the tank.

He cleans the glass as a number of fish – seemingly oblivious to his presence – swim around. Taking note of him however is a leopard shark, which swims around in a circle and heads directly towards the man’s chest. Anticipating the marine mammal heading his way, the man opens his arms and greets it with a hug.

The shark, who appears to be smiling, then moves under the man’s arm to get into a better position to be stroked. Later in the clip the shark rolls onto its back, exactly like a dog would, and relaxes as the man rubs its belly.

Hugh Manatee wrote: 'Sharks are secretly the puppies of the sea. They'll do anything for belly rubs. Don't let anyone know I told you, they work hard to keep up that fierce persona.'

Leopard sharks are a species of houndshark generally found along the Pacific coast of North America. They are relatively small compared to other shark species and are recognisable by their black saddle-like markings and large spots.

Sharks are our friends too, and they certainly do not exist for the purpose of our shark fin soup. Let us say a firm NO to shark's fin, and enjoy more tasty meat-free meals at http://KindMeal.my/
