Words by @sharksneedlove "Are Bimini lemon sharks born with personality? Perhaps they inherit it from their parents? Does a sharks personality influence what they eat? @biminisharklab PhD student Félicie Dhellemmes is conducting cutting edge research investigating personality traits in sharks. So far we’ve seen some juvenile lemon sharks exploring their habitat with a bold nature whilst others shy away from change and stick close to 'home'. Just like no two humans are the same, no two sharks are the same either. The Sharklabinvestigate how they think, act and respond to a variety of semi-captive and wild experiments. These little lemonsharks are already displaying strong and distinctive personalities and are a far cry from the single track minded, man eaters the media often portrays them as.
