Aggressive or Friendly Nurse Shark?

I spent a week diving in Belize in July. I frequently encounter one nurse shark. Although, the shark didn’t try to bite me. I’m still trying to figure out if the sharks behavior was aggressive or friendly.

From Greg: Maybe your hands shouldn’t be touching the coral:). That’s what the nurse shark was trying to tell you.

You caught me :-(
I should know better!

From JohnDiver123: Great video! What depth was this?

Thanks! Most shots were between 60-90ft. The Gray Angelfish was at 90. The Turtle and Juvenile Spotted Drum were 60-70ft.

electroreception of the shark maybe? Doesn’t appear aggressive to me. Just very interested in the electronics.
