Sand tiger shark

Carcharias taurus


Our guide told us there was a cliff from which shark spotting was certain(near the osprey nest in As he said, in the bay we were watching we soon spotted the fins of a shark which was about 2 mt long; the water was pretty shallow so the waves crashing on the beach let me take one shot at the entire animal, although it is still difficult to distinguish.


Shallow oceanic waters


I don't know if I took the pictures of one or two sharks. If they were two they resurfaced one at the time.
