Really! A DM hugging a nurse shark! What happened to the "no touch" rule? I think this is a poor example all around. I also think deliberately feeding lionfish to other marine life is not a good idea. It just helps other fish to become less cautious of spearfishing divers. We divers need to be observers and not participants in my opinion.
