I am horribly, horribly afraid of sharks, with a sickness-inducing fear. This photo made me queasy the first time I saw it. (Then I made it my screen saver.)
|Real photo, not altered. BTW, both the researcher and the shark were ok afterwards.|
For those who are also intrigued with sharks, The Monterey Aquarium has another Great White Shark in their open sea tank. A smallish male, they caught him in August. The Monterey Aquarium is the only aquarium that has a success rate with keeping these illusive animals alive, but they release them after a time since there is a limit to how long these pelagic sharks can live in captivity. So if you want to watch their live web cam for a glimpse of this amazing, terrifying shark, go to their website soon.
