Known as the 'Feel Good' shark, Strap is one the most captivating and popular female Bull Sharks frequenting the Shark Reef Marine Reserve. Strap is a true role model and an ambassador against plastic pollution, and a Shark Star.
Strap was originally named for plastic packing strap she was entangled in, and she is easily recognized by the healing wound around her head and gills, scars from the packing tape which recently burst and peeled off.
Strap was identified in SRMR in June 2016, and she is one of our younger and smaller sharks with a possible age of approx. 10-15 years and a length barely reaching 2m.
Strap does not hand feed, which broke the hearts of our staff as they would have surely been able to remove the noose of packing tape if she had come close enough. She also seldom feeds from the substrate, but prefers to participate in the aerial feed.
