This diver at the Seaquarium in Miami is biting a hose for air (no regulator!) and has been riding on the back of the Loggerhead Turtle for a few minutes. Just for a moment they settle down to the bottom and the picture was taken. Seconds later the turtle snaps at the divers thumb and narrowly misses!
