This is a GREAT WHITE SHARK. Botelho took this photo from the safety of a boat. Why? The sharks were hunting. “I needed to respect the sharks,” he says.

It is rare to see OCEAN SUNFISH. They are shy. They live in deep water. This one came up to swim with Botelho. Botelho says it was one of the best moments of his life.

SARDINES are small. Swimming in groups gives them protection. But a DOLPHIN can still trap them. “It was amazing to see,” says Botelho.
