Alex Mustard - The Safety Of A Shark
These two young Atlantic spotted dolphins (Stenella frontalis) were hunting a school of palometa fish (Trachinotus goodei). The fish, desperate for protection, have swarmed around a nurse shark ( Ginglymostoma cirratum) that was swimming lazily over the seabed. Extreme times can call for some pretty extreme measures.
