#sharkidmrstitchy competing for dominance with two sub-adult tiger sharks! this little sandbar has got some big claspers considering the size difference and large tiger sharks are known to predate on smaller sharks. if a tiger shark is in the area during a dive, we usually can see a shift in the sharks behavior before we see the tiger shark appear. many times the sharks will drop deeper or disappear altogether. but sometimes a sandbars personality and need to be alpha overshadows the potential danger and we have that one daredevil sandy trying to hang with the big girls. more commonly we see the galapagos sharks bossing around tigers, but considering galapagos can reach the size of a sub-adult tiger, it makes a little more sense. ๐Ÿ˜‰
you can tell mr. stitchy is hanging with you if you see white bumps all over his body, the spaghetti tag seen near his dorsal, and slightly agape mouth. the bumps are possibly an ectoparasite infestation but it hasn’t seemed to slow mr stitchy down these last couple years! photos by birthday girl @mermaid_kayleigh go wish her happy birthday!!!!! ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿฆˆ๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰

A smooth passby from the sassmaster himself #sharkidbully @bullyshark_. he is one of our og sharks and he knows he runs the show. ๐Ÿ˜Ž besides his alpha attitude, bully can be spotted with the notch on the front of his dorsal fin as well as two fading scars on his left side. have any of you have seen him on our dives? ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿฝ

Missing ms. aloha! haven’t seen this lady galapagos since february of this year. she is one of our alpha lady sharks that got into some trouble a few years back. she was found with fishing line somehow wrapped around her head, over her gills. luckily we were able to cut it off and true to sharks’ amazing healing factor, only some scarring is left resembling a lei and giving her the #sharkidmsaloha ๐ŸŒบ ๐Ÿ“ธ photo by @juansharks with @mattdraperphotography circa 2016

โœจnew shark id alertโœจ
this is #sharkidbabyroxy first spotted august 2018. her most identifiable feature is the broken jaw on her right, just like her predecessor #sharkidroxy, most likely caused from fighting on a long line. this girl is very curious and has been seen nosing around the floats on our mooring line ๐Ÿ™ƒ the last time she was spotted, she came in a few times to inspect from a distance, a common behavior we see at one ocean diving.

#sharkidmarlu besides her fun n feisty ladyshark personality, this female galap can be identified by the unusual h**p on her back in front of her dorsal fin, possibly caused from fighting on the line attached to the hook in her mouth :/ her tail has been hooked somehow as well ๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿฝ we have so many negative impacts on our oceans and although here we can see an example of the resilience of its residents, there still needs to be a more positive change in how we coexist. โ˜ฏ๏ธ

One of our most well-known but elusive female tigers #sharkidtank was spotted this weekend not once but two days in a row!! ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฝ you can distinguish tank by her shredded dorsal and girthy body frame- hence the name. ๐Ÿ˜‰ it’s safe to say we have had a very good tiger season this year! it’s still very rare for us to have a tiger stop by at our site but our fingers are always ๐Ÿคž๐Ÿฝ! first photo by our multi-talented captain-turning-safety diver professional photographer @forrest.in.focus from yesterday and second by cofounder @juansharks

Shark id alert turns out our beloved #sharkidseajewls and #sharkidmoana are in fact the same id ๐Ÿ˜ฎ tiger sharks can be quite tricky to maintain ids but her most recent sighting (2 days ago) allowed us to reidentify her from old ids. the dorsal has obtained new knicks but the same original marks as who we knew as seajewl remain as well as an identical pattern on the left pectoral of who we know as moana
