The Dorsal Fin Blog broke this absolutely stunning video montage of a white shark in South Africa healing from a propeller strike. At Isla Guadalupe we have seen similar damage to animals from a variety of sources, namely other sharks, and have been equally amazed at the healing process of these animals.
The animal in this video and long term study was undertaken by Alison Towner (co-authors M Smale & O Jewell) To read their paper please visit here. In the process of being published.
