Big, austere and somewhat shy, Chica is undoubtedly one the most memorable female Bull Sharks frequenting the Shark Reef Marine Reserve. Because of her spectacular physical attributes, and her aerial skills, Chica is a Shark Superstar.
Chica can be recognized by a narrow bulge protruding forward in the right upper corner of her mouth and by the two parallel lines traversing her right pectoral fin.
Chica has been visiting SRMR since January 2007, and is one of our oldest and also biggest sharks with a possible age of approx. 30 years and a length of over 3m, making her one of the most dominant females.
Chica only very rarely hand feeds but instead prefers to feed aerially.
Contrary to our most popular crowd pleasers, she is a shark who does not appear to like to associate with humans.
