We're running through the images of the month here at Underwater Thrills and this one came up.
What you are looking at is a "rejected" white shark from the Monterey Bay program. Turns out this little critter had a slight eye infection and they tagged and released him instead.
Only the "best and the brightest" make the actual aquarium exhibit, and only after going through a gauntlet of researchers, lab guys, and vets.
Think of it kind of like American Idol for White Sharks-except no one on the Monterey team has a smarmy British accent or used to be a dancer...as far as we know anyway.
