Fancy a bite? Brave scuba divers invite sharks to their tea party

Divers and Sharks Tea Party? Mirror

If you think a teddy bears' picnic is too tame how's this for a tea party with real added bite?

These brave scuba divers were seated at an underwater table in a tank filled with sharks.

The stunt marks the launch of a new display at the Sea Life London Aquarium, which aims to put an end to myths about the beautiful creature being a blood thirsty sea monster.

Deputy curator Jamie Oliver said: "We wanted to challenge the terrible - and undeserved - reputation sharks have as bloodthirsty killers.

"What better way of doing it than by joining all of them for tea.

"The team was very excited to throw the party and the sharks didn't blink an eye."

Don't fret if you've forgotten your wetsuit as the dry side of the five-metre long glass walkway allows visitors to see the creatures swim inches beneath their feet.
