Caribbean Reef Sharks Posing for the Movies

I was scanning some slides to preserve the images and found some nice shots of Caribbean Reef sharks.

In the first two, the shark is a lady and she was feeling a bit grumpy so would swim right at us then slide by quite close to us testing our reactions. The place was off Nassau and we were doing a TV show about sharks and their behaviour for the Canadian Discovery Channel.

And here are a couple more taken while we were watching the behaviour of Caribbean Reef sharks – again off Nassau – but this time as a dive shop set up to attract sharks for tourists to watch. They could attract up to 30 or even 40 sharks at a time. The tour guides are wearing chain mail suits in case the sharks bite them.
