High Fivin' 20 Feet o' Shark

I'm way late to the party on this, but I tripped over this clip from one friend's post, me been more attuned to nautical things lately as another friend is about to chase her doctorate in marine biology.  I've always been fascinated with the sea since my main phobia as a child was drowning.  Having conquered that, I'm always up for ocean, reef and other marine documentaries, as I am with anything on animals. 

Wow, man, this 20 foot behemoth, Deep Blue, who was filmed off of Guadalupe Island near Mexico...

Check it out as the diver snags a high five with this beastie.  Awesome sauce.
