Notes from a Shark Junkies Journal with Eli Martinez
During an early morning dive I had all my usual suspects in, fighting for attention, when one of the lemons, Slash, did something that surprised the hell out of me. Slash circled around me and the box like she normally does. But instead of swimming off, she instead turned towards me and burried her face between my knees and stopped swimming. I looked down at her and started rubbing her back. After a few seconds she swam off and as I watched her, I thought to myself, “that was weird, cool, but weird.” A few minutes later, she did it again, this time staying longer and again, I repeated the back rub. This happened a few more times - each time, staying longer and longer.

Apparently Slash the Lemon Shark needed a scratch where she couldn’t reach.
If the sharks are getting nippy in WA, they don’t need drum lines they need masseuses in chain mail! XD
