We did not know the head and tail of the documentary but saw people in shallow waters, catching and holding small sharks immobile. Small meaning like 2-3 feet long je. Like the species yg hubby & I saw during our vacation in Maldives.
|Creamy and cute...ehehehe. Shot in Rangali island, Maldives|
One shark swam direct to the diver heading toward the area of his stomach. And the diver induced this tonic immobility. Lo and behold, the shark stopped swimming. Diver to usap2 je the shark's snout (macam usap bawah dagu kucing gitu). Selalunya, I tgk mata shark ni, semua hitam.
|Evil looking shark|
|Shark induced with tonic immobility (TI). Mcm mata kucing tgh rilek.|
|Kena TI. Jerung tutup mata.|
The diver then did the ultimate test whether this tonic immobility is 100% induced. He flipped the shark upside down. Keras kejung rilek je jerung tuh..Truly unbelievable.
'Tonic immobility (TI) is a state of paralysis that animals enter, in most cases in response to a threat. Some scientists relate it to mating in certain animals like the shark.
