so today for my birthday i got to feed sharks, which has got to have been the most amazing thing that i’ve ever done. it was incredible to be so close to them, and to feel the force behind them when they push into the pole with the fish on - sharks are solid af.

sharks also act like giant cats, i learned. they’ll come and check out the food and pretend to be aloof about it for a few minutes but the minute the fish they share the tank with start trying to steal it they’ll really go for it. the larger ones (one is called spot) are so so greedy. i think they overfed themselves because i spotted one in a food coma when i went back to the tank later.
