Jim Abernethy reports that a Tiger Shark, named “Spot,” took a housed Nikon D100 from a diver and swam around for awhile, actually taking a photo with the rig before dropping it. “Although many believe sharks to be dumb eating machines, it is nice to reflect especially on this forum how ‘Spot’ did choose to go digital for his first camera.”
Nobody was harmed, but the event did signal the end of diving for the day. After the housing was recovered, the staff found the tiger-shark’s photo to be perfectly exposed. It is expected to appear in one of the next issues of Shark Diver Magazine.
