Video: Shark enjoys hugs, belly rubs from aquarium keeper

(WVUE) - Leopard sharks, much like a dog, enjoy belly rubs. At least that's what a new viral video suggests.

An aquarium keeper in New Caledoni has a special relationship with the fish. New Caledoni is a French territory in the southwest Pacific.

The video shows a leopard shark swim up to a tank cleaner. The cleaner lightly embraces the fish and it rolls over for a belly rub.

Aquarium officials say the shark often engages keepers.
