just looking at that rascal makes me curl my toes up!
FC, your Bait Swimming story reminds me of the old Far Side cartoon. The one with the diver hand feeding a school of fish. Next panel the diver is all alone. The caption was... 'Nature's subtle signs of danger'.Certainly enjoy your blog. Glad I found it.
Farmer,I know...that used to be our reaction too, but now it's more of a ho hum...there's a shark...It's a little different with the big ones!Reb,There are no better cartoons than the Far Side. Glad you enjoyed the tale. Actually, I'm glad to be here to tell it.
I love Far Side and I love that particular cartoon."ho hum...there's a shark..."? I can imagine myself saying, "Ho, hum...there's a turkey", or "Another day, another deer", but "ho hum...there's a cougar"? Different places, different predators. That's why I'm a lake swimmer.Heh!
Hick,I bet you mountain types are as blase about a skinny black bear as I am about small sharks. This bait swim really was a one time deal...I learn from my mistakes. Really, I do...P.S. glad you are back.
Beautiful picture ~ ohhhh do I miss working at the aquarium. *sigh*
So does this shark find enough to eat in this area? He seems so visible that any prey would run and hide. And with the water so shallow, would any prey be in the area anyway? Enlighten this landlubber.Ok, blogger hates me again.Pabloroundrockjournal.com
Hey AnonPablo,He could be just passing through, but a lot of small sharks are opportunists and the sandy shallows are full of crabs buried in the mud. With the ampullae of Lorenzini sensors beneath his snout, the shark can sense the buried crab and eat him...even if he can't see him. Weary,What aquarium?
Oh yeah, I'd forgotten about those ampullae of Lorenzini sensors! How could that have happened?Pabloroundrockjournal.com
Pablo,Electroperception...the shark can pick up the bioelectric field all living things generate...Re: your blogger cold shoulder...have you tried flowers? candy? And just so you know...I clicked on your link yesterday and got a "YOU ARE NOT AUTHORIZED TO VIEW THIS SITE" message. A click later and it was gone.
