Repost from @sharkaddicts3 "tales like this have kept a majority of people from confidently entering the ocean since the 1970's. although this chilling account of the wwii indianapolis survivor as told in this famous "jaws" monologue is mostly true; hyperthermia, blood loss, and dehydration accounted for most of the lives lost. the imagery is what haunts people. the fear of the unseen creeping up from below has literally made kids swim faster at the deep end of the pool and look behind them for decades. i don't think we'll ever shake it off completely because some part of us wants to believe that the monster are real. it allows us to rationalize an irrational fear. only way to beat it is to face it." #underwaterphotography #jaws #shark #sharks #savesharks #tigershark #jupiter #florida #floridalocal #nature #natgeo #diving #sharkaddicts #sharkweek #scubadiving #ocean #blueplanet

This is what sharks are. follow @sharkaddicts for more amazing video. @regrann from @maestro320 - "hypnosis" video shot on location in jupiter, florida featuring shark conservationist cameron nimmo @sharkaddicts courtesy of fellow shark conservationist, handler, editor and underwater videographer, mickey smith @sharkaddicts2 - that's a big silky shark with @sharkaddicts @sharkaddicts3 @thelocalbrand #underwaterphotography #gopro #sharkaddicts #sharks #shark #sharkweek #sharklove #silkyshark #nature #natgeo #florida #floridalocal #ocean #freediving #sharkaddictsdiving #beautiful tonic immobility is a reflex that causes a temporary state of inactivity in an animal – similar to hypnosis. it’s been observed in a variety of different species, including many sharks and rays. although it can occur naturally, it can be induced in sharks and rays by stimulating the tiny sensory pores (ampullae of lorenzini) located on the snout.© tonic immobility is often used by researchers when handling sharks (whether in the wild, captivity or laboratory conditions) to subdue them in order to minimise struggling and reduce the possibility of injury. the shark can be gently turned on its back, which may disorientate them and cause this trance-like response – the shark’s muscles relax and their breathing becomes deep and rhythmic – but when released, the shark snaps out of this state. this method has previously been used to help test the effectiveness of chemical shark repellents. fun fact – sharks usually enter tonic immobility in less than a minute and if undisturbed, can remain like this for up to 15 minutes before eventually righting themselves and swimming away. one explanation for tonic immobility in some animals is that it could be used as a defence strategy, as playing dead could help deter potential predators. however as many types of shark are apex predators, they don’t have many natural predators and also don’t appear to enter tonic immobility in response to fear. some scientists have suggested that this behaviour in sharks may in fact be related to mating but nobody knows for sure and there is still a great deal more to learn! - #regrann

I went diving today, and it was great to be back in the south african ocean. it wasn't a camera day though, so we will have to go with this blacktip portrait; resplendent in the crystal blue waters of kwazulu-natal. @africandivetours and @africanwatersports #sharks #shark #blacktip #carcharhinuslimbatus #conservation #blueplanet #southafrica #southafricaza #ocean #sea #underwaterphotography #underwater #scubadiving #scuba #diving #seaandsea #nauticam #savesharks #aliwalshoal #kzn #umkomaas #blue #discoversharks #oceanskeepers #sharks_are_awesome1 #simplysharks #sharkaddicts #sharksdaily #ocean #sharkdiving
