I recently took a trip to Mote Marine Laboratory to run experiments on 6 bonnethead sharks they had collected for me.  The experiments lasted about 12-16hrs each for 6 days and I got lots of data!!!  Hopefully it means something relevant.  Below are some photos of me experiments and few other cool things I saw while there….

We got a hammerhead shark delivery while I was there!  Fun!  This 1 will probably end up at Georgia aquarium.

Snoozin!  Btw, I have never really seen a shark close its eyes before seeing as they don’t have eyelids.  This blew my mind!!  🙂

Maui post is on it way (even though I’m only half way through my trip, I have over 300 photos!!)  Stay tuned!!
