Hanging with the Sevengills

Appeared in DIVER March 2012

We think of great whites, tigers, raggies and many other sharks in connection with South Africa, but Sevengills are something else. LISA COLLINS was lucky enough to encounter this ‘prehistoric-looking predator’

Sevengill sharks look to have been around since the dawn of time, but those off South Africa appear less aggressive than those sighted elsewhere in the world.
