King. It’s the only word that really comes to mind after spending a few days with white sharks like this. I had almost forgotten how powerful and impressive white sharks were, and the blue water experience showed me how they truly are an animal of heightened intellect - more so than any other shark in the ocean. What a gift it is to learn from these animals. I felt like I was back in the classroom and I loved every second of it. Pictured here is Mace, a 15-foot male white shark who has been returning to Guadalupe in Mexico since 2011.
