Instagram model attacked by shark while posing for photo

But it was one spot in particular that caught her eye for a quick photoshoot, as she saw an area where nurse sharks were swimming with people jumping in with them to take pics.

It seems like every time you pose for a photo for your Instagram, you're always getting attacked by sharks, right?

The shark held her underwater for several seconds before she managed to tear her wrist from its grip.

She's since had to make her Instagram private, after people accused her of blaming the sharks and causing the situation herself, but she insists that's not the case. Still, at the end of the day, she said she's "fortunate that [she] still [has her] arm and [her] life".

"I think if someone was screaming and flailing around it definitely could have changed the situation". She said she doesn't regret it and would do it again.

Zarutskie got stitches and antibiotics for the bite, and doctors believe she still has pieces of shark teeth in her arm. Katarina posted them to social media, where she's been overwhelmed with comments asking for details.

When asked why she went ahead anyway, she replied, "It's just a once-in-a-lifetime experience".

"They took the information they wanted and really spun the story in a way that I'm a stupid blonde Instagram model", she says.

As for Katarina, she know that the sharks didn't do anything wrong.

This might just be me, but having your photo taken fuckin' sucks.

Zarutskie said 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.

She does not want the experience or photographs to put off others from visiting the area or interacting with local wildlife when overseas, and describes the Exumas as the "most handsome place" she has ever visited.

Earlier this month, a woman on vacation in Dugong Bay, Australia, experienced a similar ordeal with a tawny nurse shark.
