Check out this feisty lady!

She turned up one month ago and quickly became the darling of a Spanish group we were hosting. After a collective pow-wow, they asked us to name her "Maite".

Being my usual nosy self, I went digging and discovered that it is a name of Basque origin and means "Beloved". Great choice!
The more as in my adopted native Country Switzerland, the very same word means "Girl"!

Maite has become a regular fixture on The Shark Dive where she is notable for her impressive size but also, for her mellow, and indeed lovely disposition.
Welcome aboard, young girl!
