Little Jaws In Bayonne

F/5.6, 1/500, ISO 400.

I came across this little guy enjoying the sun in the shallow waters of Bayonne,  New Jersey’s harbor.  This small shark was splashing around so much that it attracted the attention of two American Coot to swim up and see what the commotion was all about. For a second there, I thought that this would have been an interesting battle, but the Coots swam away at the sight of the shark.

Interesting Fact: A few of the known shark species will drown if they stop moving. Great white, mako and salmon sharks don’t have the muscles they need to pump water through their mouth and over their gills. As long as they keep swimming, water keeps moving over their gills, keeping them alive. ( http://www.sharkguardian.org/shark-facts-top-100-shark-guardian/ )
