Cuddle sharks! - Input Junkie

Chain mail or at least something that looks substantial.
This time, I paid more attention to the captions. Maybe the sharks are just being paralyzed (for the fun of it? why are the sharks hanging around?) rather than enjoying being handled.
Yeah they have chain mail suits for that. Made from stuff originally used as PPE in the meat packing industry, I am told.

Sharks have to keep moving constantly to keep water flowing through their gills. Stop them moving and they go to sleep.
This looks pretty dangerous for the sharks -- I've seen pictures of newly captured sharks being walked around a water tank to keep them from suffocating. Hopefully the sharks revived when they got moving again.
