Lemon shark watching surfer at surface. It seems possible that the image of a surfer on the surface lying on the surfboard could be mistaken for a sea lion or seal by sharks that feed on these marine mammals. All the more so since attacks usually come down to just one bite and then let go; as if they realized the mistake.
Increasingly, people and sharks come into contact as humans spend their leisure time in the seas and oceans. Many people fear sharks and particularly being attacked/bitten by one, but it is important to remember that these incidents are rare. Indeed, in 2017, the International Shark Attack File (ISAF), housed at the University of Florida, received reports of 88 confirmed unprovoked attacks worldwide, five of which (~6%) were tragically fatal; but this must be viewed in the light of the billions of people entering the water every year. Overall, surfers and swimmers account for about 80% of shark attack victims and, while the number of attacks has increased (possibly a reflection of an increasing human population), for the past few decades, the fatality rate has been falling through a combination of better education and advances in medical care. Mistaken identity is frequently cited by the media to explain shark attacks on humans. It is now considered far more probable, however, that such human-shark interactions are the result of a shark's curiosity. Sharks are intelligent, socially complex animals. They're not the ruthless killing machines frequently portrayed in the media. Globally we know of nearly 500 different species of sharks, at least two-thirds of which grow to less than 2m (6ft) in length and aren't considered a threat to humans. There's no getting away from the fact that some shark species (like many animals) do sometimes bite, even kill, humans. If sharks were truly interested in eating humans, though, they could have a veritable smorgasbord every weekend along beaches in almost every country. Shark attacks remain rare, however, even in areas where the large shark species are afforded legal protection and particularly relative to the increasing number of people using coastal waters. Unfortunately for humans, a curious shark can be a deadly shark - blood vessels close to the skin and a fragile frame make us very prone to damage if a shark investigates us with its mouth.

Cookiecutter shark, Isistius brasiliensis. Ventral view. The name cookiecutter shark refers to its feeding habit of gouging round plugs, as if cut out with a cookie cutter, out of larger animals. Marks made by cookiecutter sharks have been found on a wide variety of marine mammals and fishes, as well as on submarines, undersea cables, and even human bodies. It also consumes whole smaller prey such as squid. Cookiecutter sharks have adaptations for hovering in the water column and likely rely on stealth and subterfuge to capture more active prey. Its dark collar seems to mimic the silhouette of a small fish, while the rest of its body blends into the downwelling light via its ventral photophores. When a would-be predator approaches the lure, the shark attaches itself using its suctorial lips and specialized pharynx and neatly excises a chunk of flesh using its bandsaw-like set of lower teeth.

Orbicular batfish, Platax orbicularis, drifting

Orbicular batfish, Platax orbicularis, drifting next to a dead leaf fallen from the mangrove. Young fish have a curious behaviour related to feeding and to protect themselves from the numerous predators of the mangrove. They assume a lying position allowing themselves to be carried immobile by the current, looking like a dead leaf. Its brownish coloration with dark spots further reinforces this mimic effect. They often assume this behaviour by placing themselves in the vicinity of dead leaves carried by the current as is the case with the animal in this photo.They live in shallow protected coastal waters to deep, somewhat silty habitats. Adults are found singly or in small groups and occasionally in large schools. Juveniles occur singly or in small groups among mangroves and inner sheltered lagoons while adults move out to open waters over sandy areas of deep lagoons, channels, and seaward reefs to a depth of at least 30 m.
