Nurse shark does not want to be held

New Orleans DJ Corey Bonalewicz who was in Cancun, Mexico last week and received a not-so-fun surprise when the nurse shark he was attempting to pet ejected a large amount of water directly into his face.

Looks like a tawny nurse shark which hunts by using its large pharynx as a powerful suction to inhale the prey. But it can also use the same mechanism in reverse when it will shoot a powerful blast of water at anything that it feels threatened by.
