My first Mako!
Last week, I finally got to tick off one of my favourite sharks from my "animals I want to see" list, the shortfin mako! These are believed to be the fastest sharks (although now, some claim it might be the salmon shark) and their big, black eyes and crazy-looking jaws certainly add to their appeal. Here, one can be seen sharing the water, and the afternoon sun, with photographer extraordinaire Fabrice Guerin!
That day, we saw three different individuals in the water (including a tiny baby, maybe 70cm long, but just as confident as the larger ones), and many more breaching!
