Re: Short shark shock

I have been snorkling way closer to a whale shark than that which was about the same size if not bigger. The wife even touched it (by mistake, not on purpose). I don't think this is the same category as "surfing with bull sharks"...

Indeed. Had the good fortune to snorkel near one on the way back home from a dive expedition at the Eddystone Light, near Plymouth.

We dropped in the water a couple of hundred yards ahead of its path, and just floated there and watched it as it swam past. A memorable sight of a gentle giant that's a protected species in the UK, and rightly so

From its size, the one in the clip looks like it's quite young. A mature adult from a diver's perpective looks more like this (diver saying to one's self all the while "It's a vegetarian. It's a vegetarian."...)
