Working at an aquarium means I arrive at dive with sharks every day and certainly one of my specific favourites is just a large, three metre long imposing gray nurse shark named Mitchell. Mitchell is among a kind... literally. One gray nurse shark amongst Hammerheads, Sandbars, Leopards and Bamboo sharks. But this kind of gray nurse shark rules the reservoir; he's absolutely the employer - from the fish entirely through to the people! But he is maybe not overbearing or hard to package with.


He is sold with the spectacular Latin name of Carcharias taurus - a title to match his impressive group of teeth. He's brown on top and bright underneath so if you're possibly below or over him he combinations to the background. He appears suggest but actually he is only a huge pussy cat.


Sharks just eat when they're hungry and Mitchell is not any exception. What is astonishing is that this big three metre long shark may consume only 1 fish a couple of situations a week. When we leap in the tank we provide him food everyday but it's totally up to him whether he takes or not. For a huge shark with a big set of amazing teeth, he's also remarkably polite when he decides he's hungry. He'll meander around slowly and turn and experience you and wait until you're ready. Grey nurse sharks can'place'their jaws out about 10 centimetres from their standard sleeping place which is a fairly remarkable sight if ever you get to witness it. So we supply Mitchell employing a supply pole... only in case.


Mitchell uses lots of his time resting but he's mastered the art of resting at the office therefore properly, a lot of people wouldn't know. It's hard to choose because he can not close his eyes but the giveaway indicator is his not enough movement. He get's really, really gradual, in reality therefore slow he's hardly moving; an unexpected little flick of his b to improve direction is often the just noticeable movement. Gray Nurse sharks'digest'air from the outer lining and maintain it within their stomachs for buoyancy control. What this means is they could hold virtually motionless in the water line and Mitchell does it extremely well... I hope I had such ideal buoyancy control. Big pussy


Unfortuitously, these sharks have already been hunted almost to extinction... mainly since they search quite ferocious and people believed they certainly were person eaters. Over the east shore of Australia it's estimated there are less than 1000 specific creatures left. In 1984 the Grey Nurse shark received the somewhat unfortunate variation to be the initial shark on earth to become a protected species. Unfortuitously since that time, the east shore shark population has been decimated and is currently a'critically put at risk'species, so I believe Mitchell's chance of actually getting a sweetheart are slim to express the least.


Therefore we get good care of Mitchell. Sure one purpose is because his species is experiencing extinction but another is really because he is this type of wonderful shark, does his thing properly and without fuss and you can't help but like him.
