‘So incredible:’ Florida diver photographs up-close encounter with pregnant bull shark

This story happened in the coast of Florida. A diver John Moore, 55, saw a large bull shark. The corresponding photo of the male predator was published on his Instagram page.

Various sharks swam next to John Moore, but the man’s attention was caught by the bull shark. Capt. John Moore, 55, is an experienced diver and photographer who doesn’t shy away from finned creatures. So when a bull shark came swimming his way during a recent adventure, he seized the moment.

In John’s opinion, the predator could be pregnant. The man made such conclusions because of her behavior. “Most likely pregnant and definitely did not miss any meal. She was very unique that she came powering right up through the other bulls.

The shark was very dominant, just kind of right in the forefront of everything. She was swimming right up to my mask and just kind of sizing up what was going on out there and she was just so impressive,” Moore said.

She was a very dominant shark, confidently swam up to me during the dive,” mentioned John. Bull sharks are quite lazy and swim slowly. The diet consists mainly of large invertebrates, small sharks, other fish and dolphins.

In addition, any emissions are devoured along with live prey. At birth, they are about 60 centimeters. In adulthood, the length is 1.5 – 2.5 meters. The pictures offer detailed views of the apex predator’s razor-sharp teeth and glimmering gold eyes.

“A lot of people hear the word bull shark and they think scary intimidating predator. I don’t see them like that at all,” Moore said.

Florida has the highest concentration of large sharks along its surrounding coastline than anywhere else on the east coast.

Bull sharks, which usually travel in packs, are believed to be one of the most aggressive sharks in the ocean.

Pregnancy lasts 10 to 11 months, after which the female gives birth to 3 to 13 fry. Males are aggressive towards any potential rivals, which sometimes even humans can be considered. Their testosterone levels are higher than in any other vertebrate, which partly explains the aggressiveness.
