Enormous, assertive and slightly ominous, Maite is undoubtedly one of the most impressive and also intimidating female Bull Sharks frequenting the Shark Reef Marine Reserve. Maite is a Shark Icon.
Maite's diagnostic feature is the tip of her second dorsal fin that is curled to the left, along with a recently acquired distinctive large pale bulls-eye mark of unknown origins on her back.
She has been visiting SRMR since late 2008 and is one of our very largest sharks. At distinctly over 3m in length, she is approx. 25-30 years old.
Although she will sometimes hover mid-water with the aerialists, Maite essentially belongs to a tribe of specialized hand feeding Bull Sharks.
Maite is extremely comfortable around divers and has no qualms about approaching them in a very forward manner.
