Can you spot the Scalloped Hammerhead Shark in this photo? 👀🔨! Just like humans, shark behavior varies not only by species but also by each individual shark. Most sharks are very wary of human presence and take a more cautious approach to interacting with humans and even other sharks. It’s actually very hard to get close to a shark unless you remain very calm, slow, and seemingly uninterested in them. This is not how the media likes to portray sharks because fear sells. In my more rare observations @OneOceanDiving, Hammerheads tend to be one of the shyest species we see. On this particular day, we had a more confident Hammerhead that @camgrantphotography was able to get some photos of! This is as close as I could get to film the shark before it would slip away into the deep blue. @waterinspired 💙
✨They don’t show up when you hope or expect to see them. They arrive unexpectedly, without notice, and take your breath away. You can’t predict wild.✨
Whenever I am lucky enough to see a Tiger Shark I can’t help but think, “Wow what a beautiful animal.” It’s impossible that this breathtaking pattern doesn’t catch your eye and steal your heart. Some people may initially think that seeing sharks in the wild is terrifying due to the hype and bad reputation put on them by the media. However, each time I take people shark diving @oneoceandiving that fear quickly fades and people are enamored by sharks. Wild, strong, and mysterious, these animals are the backbone of our oceans. They need our protection as shark populations around the globe are declining due to being a target and non-target species by unsustainable fisheries. Join us in helping #SaveSharks by becoming a more conscious consumer and speaking up for sharks whenever you have the chance. 🦈 #SharkIDGeneral#TheGeneral#postpartum @oneoceansharks 💙
