I think it's obvious why I named this image "Same Same But Different", right? I find it incredible that even within the same species, a sharks colour, texture and size can vary so much! Sure size relates to age but there's so many variations in fin sizes and shapes, body part thicknesses and simple personality traits such as a quirky head shape or behavior! Sharks are sooooo not identical, off the conveyor belt mass produced manmade goods, so start treating them as the individuals they are Thinking any generic sentence relating to sharks makes sense is like believing all sharks man eaters Some sharks like to rest, some physically can't, some like the depths, some can't get there, some like to eat lobster, some plankton, some like warm waters, some like cold.. the only thing they all have in common is that they can't control what we're doing to their populations. These poor animals are fighting for their survival and with over 250,000 sharks being killed EVERY DAY it's really time we unite to save them.
Question: What will you do to help?
