What did the photographer do when he was surrounded by 5 sharks in the Bahamas?

Dubai, United Arab Emirates (CNN)–If you ever encounter a tiger shark, make sure you wear gloves and don’t wear any white gear, as the shark may be confused about its food.
Roberto Ochoa from Ecuador has been involved in the photography industry for about 10 years in marine conservation, nature and photography.

Ochoa tends to find and communicate with mega-sea creatures on our planet.

For example, the Ecuadorian photographer shown in the video below is surrounded by about 5 tiger sharks.

The video, which has garnered more than 50,000 views on Instagram, was shot in the first week of April in the Bahamas, where one can interact with tiger sharks.

The Bahamas is one of the few places in the world where you can dive with good visibility.

Knowing the behavior of tiger sharks is good, especially when they appear in large numbers, Ochoa makes sure to calmly return to his boat.

Speaking to CNN in Arabic, the Ecuadorian photographer said: “I met 6 tiger sharks at the same time and there was no problem. They are as dangerous as any other animal. However, it is very important. By understanding their behavior you can communicate with it.

Most tiger shark attacks occur on beaches due to poor visibility, which makes people confuse them with other animals such as turtles or sea lions.

In fact, many people wonder how to dive with these marine creatures because they don’t have a clear idea about tiger sharks.

Thus, they are motivated by social networks and thus have the ability to dive for the first time with the huge sea creatures that many fear in the sea.

In June, Ochoa planned a trip to the Galapagos Islands to discover one of the world’s best diving sites with mega-sea creatures.

The Galapagos is one of the only places in the world where you can dive with thousands of basking sharks.
