Most people are scared of sharks, but that’s only because they’re not all as cute as this little guy.

A bloke named Carlos has filmed his chance encounter with a tiny — but fierce — nurse shark, who went in for a big — but ultimately harmless — bite.

The little shark held on tight to his newfound friend/meal, but once he was removed, the scene wasn’t like the typical aftermath of a shark attach — instead, everyone had a good chuckle, Carlos released the predator back into the wild, and everybody went about their business.

Still, if the shark had bitten just a few inches over, Carlos probably wouldn’t have been laughing — and this story would be very different…
