I remember while I was shooting these sharks I had a painful cut in my left arm due to a slight touch with the rocks. It is amazing how these Tawny Nurse Sharks can actually rub their skin against the sharp rocks without any damage - Indian Ocean, Maldives.
Some fun while up in Kwajalein. Way more fish we caught but not enough pictures. Mahalo to my new friend Brandon for letting me use some fishing gear up here. One thing about Hawaii people always get Aloha. No matter where you end up always take care one another. #nurseshark#grouper#catchandrelease#kwajalein
《| Work Hard. Dream Big. Never Give Up.|》 •
It's what each and every one of us in Nursing do. We work incredibly hard from day 1 and on. Success is derived from several failures that we overcome.
Dreaming big is what we have been doing since our childhood. We looked up to our role models and wanted to be just like them. •
Giving up isn't in a nurse's vocabulary. We keep going, no matter the hurdle. Hard situations happen every day with codes, RRTs, giving news of a dire prognosis to a patient. We stick it through and become this superhero of a nurse for our patients. Never Give Up! #nurse#NPlife
🦈TAWNY NURSE SHARK 🦈
Best sick day ever contained an hour with 7-8 of these fellas. They are found widely along coastlines in the Indo-Pacific, preferring reefs, sandy flats, and seagrass beds from very shallow water to a depth of 70 m (230 ft). With a cylindrical body and a broad, flattened head, the tawny nurse shark is quite similar in appearance to the nurse shark of the Atlantic and East Pacific, from which it can be distinguished by its pointed-tipped dorsal fins and narrow, sickle-shaped pectoral fins. The maximum recorded length of the tawny nurse shark is 3.2 m (10 ft). Encounters with tawny nurse sharks underwater indicate a more docile demeanor than the similar nurse shark; usually divers are able to approach the sharks closely and even touch and play with them without incident. However, this species has been infrequently provoked into biting, and merits respect due to its strength, small but sharp teeth, and extremely powerful jaws.
