There has been much brouhaha about the above picture.

Now the photographer, one Gerardo de Villar, has posted an explanation on his iDiveSharks page.
If I understand him correctly, this is apparently some kind of voluntary maneuver and not tonic immobility triggered by you-know-who. "Somebody" tells me that the Shark developed the aileron roll in order to avoid being grasped by the snout, a favorite gimmick of the above-mentioned Mister.

Whatever it is, it continues to irritate me.
