africajohn You might think they like the camera but the truth is that murky water and poor visibility require that they come this close just to check you out. Closest living relative to prehistoric sharks - the Sevengills. Diving with @shark_explorers and @mornehardenberg 3h

africajohn Hardly looks like a villainous predator but don't be misled - at night this Sevengill shark becomes a determined hunter. Awesome to dive with during the day - albeit the vis was terrible and the water was freezing. 3h

africajohn On the way back from our 45 mile boat trip (each way) to dive with blue sharks, we stopped off at Miller's Point, just outside of Simonstown to jump in the freezing cold water with the local Sevengill sharks (aka Cowsharks). These are nocturnal feeders with poor eyesight do they rely on close encounters to assess whether you're food or predator etc. 3h

africajohn @pbearfox squares off with Junior.....never flinched, stood her ground, stayed vertical, stared down the shark, let the shark nudge and even nibble the camera a little. .....showed the shark who was really in charge. Perfect example of how to behave and interact in the water with sharks. 3h

africajohn So right after this excitable little guy scratched my dome lens, he came cruising by to survey his damage. Notice the scratch marks from his teeth - center right on the pic. Little bugger! They're like excitable little puppies. Amazing sharks to be around.
