Predation!


From today's Shark diving footage.
In case you didn't know it: Giant Trevally are very much awesome predators in their own right that will jump at any opportunity - which is why all of our clients have to wear dark gloves lest the ever greedy Fish will nail their hands!
As Wikipedia tells us, the species has some quite novel hunting strategies including following monk seals and stealing prey that is stirred up, as well as using sharks to ambush prey - q.e.d.!!!
Is this cool, or what!!!
