How to Dance with Tiger Sharks

Posted June 16, 2014 by Motherboard Staff

At first glance, I sort of thought this Avatar-meets-sharks in an underwater ballet was better suited for the side of a van—or maybe black velvet—than a video. But then, the longer I watched it, the more baffling and impressive it became.

How far underwater is she, how is it so clear, and how is she there at all? Did that tiger shark just try to bite her boot?

The long and the short of it is that her name is Hannah Fraser, and she’s an Australian underwater model who has made a name for herself over the last 12 years swimming with humpbacks, manta rays, and many types of sharks—from massive-mouthed whale sharks to the great whites—all while dressed as a mermaid.
