Watch: Giant Fish Almost Eats Man's Hand

Have you ever wondered about why those all those signs say, 'Don't feed the fish?' After watching this terrifying Instagram video, those signs suddenly make perfect sense.

This video was uploaded by pro fisherman Scott Pierce Jr., who shot the video and placed it on his Instagram. Pierce Jr.'s friend Luke, who was feeding the tarpons, had a reason not to be worried about the jumping fish - tarpons don't have any teeth. 

Even so, watching a fish that size put it's mouth around Luke's arm nearly to the elbow is pretty terrifying. We're not sure we would have stayed as calm as he did, but we are sure that they chose a pretty killer (no pun intended) soundtrack for the clip.
