Scuba Diving

Walking Shark - Raja Ampat

Night dive - Raja Ampat, West Papua, Indonesia. Came across this guy - 'Walking Shark' 1 meter long. Tour Directors told me 'Book says they only get to 2 and half feet'. This one was a meter, but I have nothing for reference, had I known that this was world record I would have set something next to him, he wasn't going anywhere. Dive master agreed with me - 1 meter, but Mali is from Bali and they said he would agree with anything I said. I don't disagree with that, but the shark was still 3 feet long - longer than my leg - could not capture all of him with my macro lens at night... And again did not realize he was world's biggest Walking Shark until they told me. Just the facts...
