Re: Shark

It could be a Mola. It could be a lot of things. As I said above, it's really impossible to tell from that pic. I tossed out the suggestion that it might be a salmon shark based on aquestforfun's description of it as a "baby great white shark", and because it looks a bit like a shark with the tail flexed to one side. But, there are lots of sharks and other big fish in the ocean. Without a clear pic, or even better a movie, even a card-carrying Marine Biologist (such as Yours Truly) couldn't make much more than a wild guess.
