Don’t worry. We’re sure that hand-feeding wild reef sharks will work out well for everyone involved.

With another edition of “People Doing Stupid Things with Carnivorous Fish,” this fnukajda video out of Jardines de la Reina, Cuba, shows how some tourists decided that the best way to experience the beauty and power of wild reef sharks was to accidentally goad one into jumping onboard.

Whoops.

The sharks in this video are most likely Caribbean Reef Sharks. Reef sharks come in five varieties, and can grow to over 10 feet long and weigh up to 150 pounds.

They’re not known to be particularly aggressive, and although most attacks on humans are defensive, and none have been fatal, we still wouldn’t recommend having them say, on your boat.

What do you think of these tourists? Ocean explorers, or fish food? Let us know in the comments below.
