Shark Missing Fins by herpamacderp Shark Missing Fins by herpamacderp
This is one seriously tough, BAMF. This shark was missing his dorsal and both pectoral fins, and it looks like the second dorsal was gone too, yet he was still swimming along like nothing was wrong. Seriously; what a badass. The only shark I've ever seen or even heard of who survived like that. You can see the original video this came from at Sportsman Altizer's youtube channel, www.youtube.com/user/Sportsman…. It was quite a dive.

If I didn't have a regulator in my mouth, I would have yelled at the sudden shark. :)

Me neither, I thought it was a death sentence. It usually is, but I guess the big guys can survive. He was a good 10-12 feet.

Yeah :/ Good to see that some of them survive this though.

What sort of shark is he, a Sand Tiger?

Yep, off of the Outer Banks in North Carolina. If you dive, look up Olymous Dive Center. They're the guys who take you to those wrecks with the sharks and more. Regrettably, the weather didn't permit me to go to the U-352.

What other larger fish have you seen in that area?

It was mostly sharks, but there were a ton of Tuna hunting on the wrecks.
