Can you pet a Great White Shark?

The mere thought of being close to a great white shark sends shivers down most people's spines. Thanks to Hollywood and its depiction of this infamous marine creature as a "ferocious man eater" in movies such as "Jaws" and "Deep Blue Sea."

In reality, however, great white sharks can be gentle and friendly towards humans. As shown in the video below, Valerie Taylor feeds a great white shark with her bare hands and even pat it on the head! Proof that that great white sharks are peaceful creatures. This clip is from the documentary "Shadow of the Shark."

So to answer the question, yes you can pet a great white shark! If you have the guts to do so!
