Should be a year of high predation, hopefully with me at the TOP of the food chain and not in the belly of this little guy's grandparent. Oh, yes: Bull sharks eat people. They've charged me. They have been found to be responsible for more attacks on humans than any and all other species of shark. These are the attacks that the "professionals" know about, only. There are many more. When one is alone, there is no one to record or report an "event". This is when this species is extremely aggressive towards humans--they know by the sounds and impulses in the water exactly what's going on. So, only the shark knows each of his meals. He is the REAL expert of his own behaviour. And those in the water with him often--lone anglers such as myself, know him pretty well, too. They DO love stingrays. Poor frienly water-flying guys!
Here's the slinky swimming motion of a relaxed shark illustrated: you can "click" this image for a closer look
And here's that profile with the high dorsal and schimitar tail: you can "click" this image for a closer look, too.
I must work on getting better night shots.....the silhoueted subject in the light confuses the "intellignet" digital camera.
Oh, I tried to bind this shark to my DX6i Spektrum transmitter. No dice!
