Unexpected Shark Behaviour – Rare Footage

Marine scientists were amazed by their extremely rare sighting of a shark’s natural behavior far off the coast of British Columbia, Canada. Footage shows a 2 meters male Salmon Shark heaving itself onto, and sliding along, a barnacle-encrusted log adrift at sea. Researchers believe the shark was attempting to remove the large, visible parasites from its body and fins—copepods that are detrimental to the shark’s health and swimming efficiency. S.
