The couple – who have hundreds of thousands of followers Instagram Accounts – are on a seven-year journey around the world with their two young sons, Darwin and Lenny.

On Sunday, Elayna caused a social media frenzy when she shared a video of Riley feeding one shark as she and little Lenny stood right on the edge of the boat – inches from the beast.

The tot can be seen stepping back while the shark thrashes and bumps against the edge of the boat.

“Hand feeding sharks from our floating home,” reads Elayna’s caption.

“We’ve seen a lot from that back porch, but nothing quite like it.”

The clip was met with a tirade of backlash as concerned social media users and marine biologists alike lashed out at the couple.

One person commented: “Please be careful. I don’t think these videos are worth the risk you are putting your family in.

“I’m afraid this will backfire one day. The ‘clicks’ aren’t worth it.”

A marine conservation biologist added: “This is awful and super irresponsible. They train sharks to associate human interaction with feeding.”

Another user said: “This is just plain stupid. Accidents happen because of shark feeding, anyone who lives on the water knows that.”

A fourth quipped, “This is where the term clickbait must have come from.”

And a fifth wrote: “Not cool. Your child looks scared. You don’t get my support for content like this, I unfollow.”

But some fans defended the pair, calling the video “amazing.”

One said: “This is amazing!! Kudos to you for doing this! I love it!”.

Another wrote: “It’s so nice to see the respect you have for sharks.”

A third added: “Little Lenny will be fearless in life.”
