A 10-foot long gray reef shark’s face is shown where you can see the tiny dots on their skin, which are the electromagnetic sensors that can tell the difference between a land animal and a sea creature.

Large sharks have been a part of Hanalei Bay way before humans ever showed up in Hawai‘i, and we are still learning about their behavior everyday.
