Shark ID Questioned: The Response from the Photographer


 Hi,

 

I haven’t yet seen the CaliforniaDiving News with my photo of what I believed to be a soupfin shark, but I’mtold the identity is up for debate. Here are some other photos to continue yourcomparison, and I also posted a video clip to get another look.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hpYzirYqk7c.

 

To me, the eye was too small and the caudal fin was all wrong for itto be a mako.

 

On the other hand, she was rather beefy and definitely had someteeth on her.

 

I’ll be interested to see what other people say. Thank you forincluding my photo!

 

Best,

Tully Rohrer
