Melissa Brunning, 34, of Perth, Australia, who says she was on a "once-in-a-lifetime" vacation, is lucky to be alive after the unexpected attack.
The Tawny Nurse shark is usually considered a relatively calm and docile species. " She now has a simple message for the rest of humankind".
Please ignore words like "shocking" and whatnot, as this is basically just footage of a shark behaving exactly as one might expect a shark to behave. Very sound advice from a reliable and knowledgeable source.
Her friends managed to pull her back onboard to safety.
Brunning said she felt multiple sharp teeth dig into the bone of her finger and thought the shark bit her finger off during the attack.
Ms Brunning said she feared she would lose her finger.

Roseanne Barr Reveals She Might Be Returning to Television
Barr, who is Jewish, spent much of the 71-minute discussion talking about her faith and the Torah. It was my own ignorance, and there's no excuse for that ignorance, ' she said.
But when she returned, she went straight to the doctors and X-rays revealed her badly infected finger had a fracture and torn ligament.
Tawny sharks are normally placid creatures, but will bite defensively if they feel threatened. "I couldn't even look at the finger because I thought if I looked at it and saw it was gone, I'd probably go into shock".
But she took full responsibility for the incident, telling the West Australian it was "completely my fault" and "just a blond doing a stupid thing".
She said she did not realise she should have left the piece of fish she was using to feed the sharks in front of her, rather than trying to hand-feed them.
"I'm not a shark victim, I have full respect for sharks, I think they're incredible". When you are in the water, they are top of the food chain, it is their domain.
'It's not the shark's fault at all, but it could have been a lot worse, ' she said.
