Sharks: Known as the apex predator only because They are so uniquely designed to dominate our oceans. They are unjustly feared and under-appreciated. To be in the water with these magnificent animals, to watch them express curiosity, to be but a spectator of their world, is truly humbling. Without sharks, our oceans would not survive. Without healthy oceans, the human race would not survive. So thank you sharks, for doing our dirty work. I’m sorry for the horrible things that have happened to your species, but just know, you have a huge support group.✊🦈 Love,
Our local, favorite site known as Fish Head is just buzzing with life. The name ‘fish head’ is rumored to have originated from the fishermen only reeling up fish heads after all of the sharks below have stolen their meal.
: Tiger shark 🦈 The tiger shark (galeocerdo cuvier) is named for its dark vertical stripes. These stripes, however, fade as the sharks age and often disappear altogether. The fourth largest shark (behind the whale shark, basking shark, and great white shark), the tiger shark can grow up to 20 feet and 1,900 lbs. These large sharks are known for eating anything in their path, including license plates! Let’s help them out by limiting the amount of harmful substances and objects that go into their home 💙 📷: @oceanramsey
