A Mako Shark cruises through the blue waves of San Diego, CA; its dorsal fin not even breaking the surface.
Makos are one of the fastest fish in the sea, capable of speed bursts of up to 60 mph. Of all shark species, they also have one of the largest brains, relative to body size.
The numbers of Makos have declined worldwide due to overfishing and the increasing global demand for shark fins. They are currently listed as vulnerable by the IUCN.
Learn more about Mako Sharks from the feature story about these impressive animals in the August issue of National Geographic Magazine, @NatGeo.

And if you like sharks, or simply find these creatures fascinating, check out the new book - SHARK - by @BrianSkerry and @NatGeo! Available at the link in my bio or wherever books are sold.

Tonight on @SharkWeek: Here, a saltwater croc carries a turtle in its mouth, while being chased by Tawny Nurse and Black Tip sharks. This behavior has gone virtually unwitnessed until now.

A charter boat hauled in what looks to be the largest mako shark ever caught off New Jersey. Weighing in at a staggering 926 pounds, the shortfin mako is 70 pounds heavier than the previous record that was recorded in 1994. Captain Dave Bender, who owns a fishing boat called the Jenny Lee, pulled in the shark with the help of five other fishermen who chartered his boat. Because more than one person caught it, it won’t be an official state record, but the fact remains that it is by far the heaviest shortfin mako caught off New Jersey’s coastline.

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.

How many sharks can you count? Here is one of the aerial shots of my recent encounter with a massive ball of bait fish and hundreds of Bronze Whaler sharks feeding on them. It was spectacular to see and had me
mesmerised for days as the bait ball slowly got smaller. There were people surfing nearby. People swimming even people spear fishing all very close by. Such an epic part of Australia. @inthesea2017 #water #saveourseas #saveourbeach #sharkweek #savethesharks #shark #sharklove #coexist #oceanlove #ocean #oceanminded #oceanography #beautiful #art #arialphotography #discoverocean #drone
