Notes

This was my first sighting of a shark as a diver. It wasn't exactly what I expected a shark to look like since this species of shark is smaller as compared to the others and also they seem to be pretty timid. I'm not sure if I found them feeding on anything so I don't really know what kind of fish they eat. I don't have a picture of the sharks since none of the divers with me had a go pro and neither did I. However, seeing the shark was pretty amazing since it was the first time i had seen one up close in the wild.
