Brave Woman Has Removed Over 300 Fishing Hooks from Sharks

A really brave and amazing woman who helps a shark when diving.


Cristina Zenato is known worldwide as a “shark whisperer”. She is a diver who on this occasion extends her hand into the mouth of this great shark to save it.

The video, which you will have the opportunity to watch, shows Cristina diving in the Bahamas with her colleagues. The water is crystal clear, and sharks are clearly visible around them.


Trying to pull the hook out of the shark’s mouth, she had to slip her hand into them.

According to what we see, the shark endured it completely calmly and without any problems.

However, given the circumstances, Cristina had to be secured with chainlink body armour.

The brave diver uses a special technique of rubbing the ampullae of Lorenzini – the name given to hundreds of jelly-filled pores around the creature’s nose and mouth – to send it in to a calm, meditative state.


It causes sharks to enter a natural state of paralysis for up to 15 minutes.

‘In my daily work and dives with sharks I am always removing their hooks,’ Ms Zenato was quoted as saying.

The fearless Cristina uses a special technique to bring him into a relaxed state. It is about rubbing Lorenzini ampoules.


That way the sharks will be in natural paralysis for about 15 minutes.

The brave lady said it was a very familiar job to her because she does it almost every day. Very often when swimming and diving, she removes hooks from sharks.

However, this time it was a little different than before. It was quite difficult.

This woman has been helping sharks for over 20 years. Nat Geo, the BBC and probably many others have noticed this woman’s amazing work.

Cristina has over 20 years of experience working with sharks, and her talents have been noticed by film and documentary makers all over the world, including the BBC and Nat Geo.
