When an 8-metre long set of satanic dentures with fins strapped to it passes you by in the sea, Nerja’s sewage output dwindles in comparison to your own.
It was a couple of weeks ago that a 4-metre shark was spotted off Calahonda and today, just off La Mamola another one was spotted, 200 metres off the beach.
A diver from the Club de Actividades Subacuáticas La Espera filmed it as it went by, bless his rubber socks.
The Servicio Marítimo de la Guardia Civil had a look at the footage and calculated that it was closer to eight metres in length and not suprisingly recommended that kayak users refrained from making its acquaintance.
This beastie is a basking shark,which takes second place in size only to the whale shark. The basking shark feeds on plankton rather than surfing boards, kayaks and curious divers so other than being swallowed by mistake, it shouldn’t make you soil your swimwear, which is very brave thing to say sitting behind a keyboard, admittedly.
