An Australian woman won't be feeding sharks ever again.

AUSTRALIA -- An Australian woman won't be feeding sharks ever again.

Melissa Brunning was recently standing on the back of a boat hand-feeding fish to a group of "tawny nurse" sharks.

They're usually a placid species but with powerful jaws and multiple rows of shark teeth.

Melissa thought her finger was bitten off, but it was just broken.

She's OK but said she'll now watch sharks from the inside of a boat, thank you.
