Good day at Shark Park but sharks getting a little heavy on equipment

The team returned from Shark Park today with beaming smiles. The team had some gear to repair after an incident with a blacktip shark and a stobe cable-when I asked for details everyone started laughing.The visibility was between 10m and 15m. There were three tigers and 50 blacktips.
The blacktips are getting so bold that one of the staff cameramen (Sijmon De Waal) had his strobe cable bitten clean in half. The blacktips are so interested in the strobes that this has been a long time coming. The images are great and will post some tomorrow.
As for the aquarium shark unfortunately no show so far. We need a little girl between 1.5m and 1.8m pre caudal. So far the girls are a bit bigger than that - quite a bit bigger - 2.6m to 3.2m pre caudal. As luck would have it, last week we had two suitable candidates but with the cooler water they have dissappeared. We will keep at it.
