Before leaving Talbot Bay we had a close encounter of another kind. These sharks came around late in the afternoon looking for tipbits I think the crew called them Lemony or Lemon Sharks. The crew hand feed them each time they come through Talbot Bay and so some of us did too. They make a frightful sucking noise when they take the food (generally chicken) and you can scratch the top of their heads which feels like bumpy leather. Yes I did 🙂 And another reason not to swim in the water.
