This is one tough Mako shark

These photos of a shortfin mako shark are amazing (source).  We found one dead shortfin mako Isurus oxyrinchus on the pirate fishing vessel we boarded in the Galapagos in 2011.  They are more impressive alive.  HT to Dr Isabelle Cote AKA @redlipblenny

Punching above her weight: The pugnacious Mako refused to be intimidated by the much larger Great White Sharks like the one seen in the background and was even seen butting them out the way
