认识the 大白鲨 of 瓜达卢佩


Instagram的 
自从我们开始潜水以来已经16年了 大白鲨瓜达卢佩岛 我们已经确定了200多个独立的鲨鱼。妮可·卢卡斯(Nicole Lucas)来自 海洋保护科学研究所 是启动并维护所有鲨鱼的照片ID数据库的科学家 瓜达卢佩,这使我们能够知道遇到的所有鲨鱼。

自2001年以来,每年都会有很多这样的鲨鱼出现,我们非常了解它们。他们中的一些人很容易被认可并成为名人,不仅因为潜水员有幸能与他们面对面见面,还得益于视频, 优酷 和电视上的《鲨鱼周》。

我将向您介绍一些我最喜欢的鲨鱼,并向您展示什么使它们对我特别。

由于成年雌性鲨鱼在瓜达卢佩(Guadalupe)的造访周期为2年,并且雄性鲨鱼每年都会出现,而且通常在本季节更早出现,因此我们比雄性鲨鱼了解得多。因此,我将从男性开始介绍。

Meet "咬脸"


咬脸 has been around every year since 2001. He has grown 放弃 e a bit over the year and has mellowed out considerably. When we first met him, he was a sub adult who often got into some altercations with other 鲨鱼 s. That is how he got his name, when we first identified him, he had a big bitemark on his face from a run in with another 鲨鱼 。如今,他身材高大,即使在被海豹缠身的情况下,也可以从容地游cru。



咬脸 is also famous on 维基百科,您可以在其中找到他的这张照片。

If you look closely, you'll notice that his 背鳍 is intact in this picture and in the photo on top, the very tip of his dorsal is cut. This is a mutilation that is not going to change and is one way to identify 咬脸 today. For accurate identifications, we use the color patterns in the transition from white belly to grey top, which is like a fingerprint. (more on that in a future 博客 ).

咬脸 was also one of the first 鲨鱼 s tagged by 多迈尔博士 from MCSI , which was filmed for the television series "远征大白"并以百万计。贴在他身上的卫星标签显示他将在夏天前往夏威夷,然后在秋天返回瓜达卢佩。他's been doing this every year, since we first met him in 2001.

我等不及要回去八月,连续十七年再次见到他。快来加入我的行列,结识他。他喜欢在笼子里游泳,直视潜水员的眼睛。
