A Twist Of Lemon Shark!

Lemon sharks are short-nosed and stocky sharks that reportedly have a powerful bite. Their yellow-brown pitted skin has a lemon coloration helps them to blend in against sandy seafloors where they can lay motionless. Although they are often solitary, my experience with them in the Bahamas at an undisclosed location called Tiger Beach, proved otherwise. Amid the tiger sharks we were diving with, there were over 20 lemon sharks swimming around. They totally gave us no notice, nor did they display any threatening postures. A very cool experience!
