Incredibly beautiful video clearly demonstrates how little we understand about the Other Nations.
Superbly filmed and edited by Joe Romeiro of 333 Productions, the intertwining of film and soundtrack is genius. The Latin rhythms of “Malaguena Salerosa” by Chingon eddy and swirl like the lithe bodies of the sharks that encircle female diver/expert handler Cristina Zenato.
Filmed in the Grand Bahamas, 333 Nina Salerosa builds to an emotionally moving finale between the diver and one large Caribbean Reef shark that brought tears of awe to my eyes.
The immobility you will witness is called tonic immobility, and is an anti-predator behavior which does not always work the way nature intended. In one documented case an orca used the knowledge of how to do this to hold a shark upside down for 15 minutes until it drowned (sharks must swim to breathe).
