  2. Please comment:

    1. Have you ever seen a juvenile zebra shark (with stripes) in the wild? (I have only seen one in an aquarium)

    2. Do you call them "leopard" or "zebra" sharks in your part of the world?

  3. Great Video!
    The image are poor compared to what we have used in your videos
    Don't feed animals!!!!!!!!!
    I have never seen a juvenile leopard shark
    Here in Spain we call Leopard Shark

  4. Thanks for your feedback. Do you mean the quality of the images is poor, or it is poor because you see evidence of feeding the sharks?

  5. In comparison of other videos in your site, you have spectacular macro shoots and probably due to film, whalesharks and zebra sharks, in wide angle colours and visibility are worse.
    And it is only a technical comment and envy because I have not that image quality ( vimeo kilian figueras), stability and perfect!! post po with comments translations and marine life identification. great job!!

  6. Oh OK. Well, this footage was shot several years ago with a standard definition camera, so the resolution is lower than my more recent footage. I plan to upload plenty more of the clearer footage in the future. Thanks again for the feedback, which is valuable to me. I am interested in your reasons against shark feeding, if you wish to share, as the for/against debate interests me.

  7. I'm going to make you questions about feeding animals…
    ¿Do you think is a good idea feed animals in order to have a good shoot?
    ¿Do you think wild animals have any benefit in getting fed?
    ¿Do you think wild animals change habits because of the easy food?
    ¿Do you think jacques cousteau have had any success if on his pgm would not have used malpractice in their shoots? knowing that their job was excellent for divers and animals.

  8. ¿Do you think is a good idea feed animals in order to have a good shoot?

    Yes, if it doesn't harm the animals. Good shots can ultimately promote wildlife's welfare through public awareness.

    ¿Do you think wild animals have any benefit in getting fed?

    In most cases, no.

  9. ¿Do you think wild animals change habits because of the easy food?

    Yes, if the feeding is regular. There are very few visiting boats at that site in the Burma Banks. That was very likely the only time those nurse sharks were fed by humans. Different story somewhere like Tiger Beach off Florida where feeding is regular and sharks are somewhat "tamed".

  10. ¿Do you think jacques cousteau have had any success if on his pgm would not have used malpractice in their shoots? knowing that their job was excellent for divers and animals.

    I am not sure what "malpractice" you refer to.

  11. I'm sorry, I can't see what you mean. Maybe reflection of the red algae on the reef? Whereabouts on the shark's body do you see it?

  12. Ah, I see what you mean now. Hard to tell, even on the original footage. Could be a wound or it could be algae.

  13. There are both zebra sharks and nurse sharks in this video. Zebra sharks are sometimes known as leopard sharks.

  14. 00:27 It's the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man from Ghostbusters!! I hope you had your Proton Pack equiped when filming him! 😂
