Thresher sharks use their tails like whips in a unique hunting technique to kill or stun prey. The tail slaps reach speeds of 24 meters/sec, killing up to 7 fish at once as reported in this video by #theguardian #thresher #sharks #philippines

Who else is all about those tight lines at sunset?! Pretty amazed at these summer night skies!

Little afternoon fun. Feels like I'm #livingthedream #thresher for dinner. Great time with two legends.

Stoked on my first thresher #thresher #honeybucket

So let me ask you guys....gaff or no gaff!?!? #WDYD people on both sides of this argument had strong opinions about this little pup. We ended up working this guy for like 30mins before he bit the line, but had this close shot early on. Had we had been quick about it, we could have put him in the boat. #isitforfunorforfood #thresher #heyvatodontslapmyboat

Thresher sharks are famous for their tails! These solitary sharks use their tails for everything. It helps them swim fast, leap into the air if necessary, and hunt, of course. But didyouknow these tails can make up 33% of their total body weight? That's an average of 767 pounds in the tail alone! repost @azuladotcom

It took me two dive attempts to capture this pelagic thresher shark in all its glory. :) .

Have you ever consider having a car wash station underwater? Monad Shoal (12-30m whose side drops to 200+m) near Malapascua is the only place in the world where you can see Thresher Sharks in a regular basis. These sharks are night creatures (nocturnal). They live and hunt food in deep water but would come up to the shoal, a place they consider a cleaning station every morning. Small fishes called "cleaner wrasse" would eat dead skin and bacteria of these thresher sharks.👌🏻👌🏻👌🏻

A week of insane diving at Malapascua Island has come to an end. Thank you to my amazing instructor, Dish and the entire crew of @threshercove for this memorable experience. Gaining the scuba license is a no joke. I learned new skills and discovered a completely different world. I will never forget the thresher shark 🐋🐳encounter at Monad Shoal (30m deep). 👌🏻👌🏻👌🏻 #PADIcertified #diver

The reason to wake up at 4am😊 #malapascua #monad shoal #thresher shark

Looking a little surprised there, Mr Shark? #tbt #monadshoal #malapascua #scuba #endangered #thresher

This is Odarr, the Thresher God.
Since Thresher sharks are known for whipping their prey with their tails, I gave him an actual whip. The little doodle to the side is a terrible effort to draw him from the other side. I might try again at a later time.

"Hello, I Am A Fabulous Thresher Shark"

Continuing the shark art this is a quick watercolour with some inking to add motion and add contrasts between the fins and the background
