Passing so close, then turning. It is a shark with many names, gray whaler shark, olive shark and ridgeback shark, but it most commonly go under the name Silky Shark. The name comes from the velvet texture of the skin. In every picture it stands out shiny. This is one of the most abundant sharks and it is found all over the world in tropic waters. It grows up to 8 feet, is streamline and fast – and it has to be, because its favorite meal is fast bony fishes like tuna. When shark diving with bait, it is a common site. Beautiful animal.
