This shark was about 3.5 meters long. You will really be surprised at how quickly one's perception of these sharks changes from the "Jaws" like stereotype to one of awe and appreciation when you see them close like this. They are truly marvels of evolution, graceful and very complex animals. In reality they are nothing like Jaws at all.

Cheers

How, that is amazing. I would be totally scared out of my mind to come close to that shark.It truly look like "Jaws" from the movie. Any idea on how large that shark is? 12-14 ft? Thanks so much for the great work!
