An eight-year-old girl is recovering after a dolphin at Sea World bit her and nearly pull her into the water while her mother was shooting video.

Jillian Thomas made the mistake of lifting her plate of food for the dolphin into the air, which the park warns visitors not to do.

Luckily, she wasn't seriously hurt. She left the Florida theme park with a set of teeth marks that are about the size of dimes, but her parents are still not happy about the incident, which they say was 'trivialized' by Sea World employees. The Thomas family does not plan to sue, but they released the video in an effort to make sure it doesn't happen again and they're urging Sea World to raise the age limit of the children allowed to feed the animals.

Sea World said in a statement, 'Nothing is more important to us than the health and safety of our guests, employees and animals. Educators and animal care staff were at the attraction when this happened and immediately connected with the family.'
