Shark Attack 01 – Shark vs Shark – Dangerous Animals
http://Ojatroblog.blogspot.comLemon sharks are fast-swimming, agile predators that feed primarily on free-swimming bony fish and cephalopods. Their aggressive demeanor enables them to dominate many other shark species in the ocean, despite their moderate size. These sharks are social rather than territorial. During the day, they often form groups of five to 20 individuals or more near coral reef drop-offs, splitting up in the evening as the sharks begin to hunt. These sharks are known to perform a threat display, a stereotypical behavior warning that it is prepared to attack. The display involves a “hunched” posture with characteristically dropped pectoral fins, and an exaggerated, side-to-side swimming motion. Lemon sharks often do so if they are followed or cornered by divers to indicate they perceive a threat. This species has been responsible for a number of attacks on humans, so should be treated with caution. Lemon Sharks were filmed by Heiko Kiera aka Ojatro on the Bahamas in 2013.
