The shark gradually came closer and closer. But Ulivi said he wasn't scared at all, and actually found the proximity to a wild shark exhilarating.
"Usually blue sharkes are super curious and commonly they approach divers really at a short distance," Ulivi told The Dodo.
Ulivi, being in the business of diving, knows that sharks hardly ever want to hurt anyone, despite what "Jaws" and other narratives might suggest. In fact, your chance of being killed by a shark is about 1 in 3.7 million.
