Instagram model bit while posing with sharks in Bahamas

Instagram models are known for doing some pretty amazing and sometimes dangerous things.

One recent trip to the Bahamas almost put one teen in big trouble when she decided to swim with sharks!

The 19 year old Miami nursing student said she was coerced by locals to pose with the group of nurse sharks and found it an opportunity to “connect with nature.”

All was well until while floating, one of them bit her on the wrist.

She immediately headed for the stairs to get out of the water, holding her bloody arm above her head to keep it out of the water, leery of riling up the sharks.

The Southern California native said doctors told her it could have been much worse. She was left with only a scar on her wrist.
