Although many people would be scared to find themselves in open water surrounded by tiger sharks, this was not the case for free diver Dante Weston, who was captured hand-feeding the sea creatures on January 16 near Grand Bahama Island.

Underwater photographer and videographer Szilard Janko was along for the journey with Weston and managed to capture a moment on video that he would not soon forget.

The footage shows Weston floating above the ocean floor and reaching into a metal container and removing a piece of fish, as a tiger shark swims toward him.

Once the shark gets close enough, Weston uses the piece of fish to guide the animal closer to Janko’s camera, before he lets go of the snack and allows the shark to eat it.

“Each shark has a different personality, this one very gently takes the fish out of the hand and then is gently redirected to swim away,” Janko told Storyful.

Tiger sharks are “aggressive predators,” according to oceana.org, and one of the “Big Three” in the shark attack world, along with great white and bull sharks, “because they are large species that are capable of inflicting serious injuries to a victim, are commonly found in areas where humans enter the water, and have teeth designed to shear rather than hold,” according to International Shark Attack File.

“These sharks are not the vicious man eaters that Hollywood movies make them seem, but at the same time we have to remember that they are wild animals while free diving with them,” he told Storyful. Credit: Szilard Janko via Storyful
