I took this picture on Protea Banks, South Africa, a sea mount 8 km off the coast of Port Shepstone.
I used my Motormarine II camera with a Sea and Sea flashgun and Fuji Sensia 100 film. The shark was in the entrance of a cave at 40 metres.
In July, the raggies come to mate and congregate on the reef. We saw about 150 during the dive.
Although they look fierce, they are not designed to tear big pieces of flesh off their prey, but rather they hunt fish which they can catch thanks to their dagger like teeth and then swallow whole.
