Angel sharks are one of the most critically endangered shark species on the planet.

In the month of January we have been very lucky to spot not one, but two individuals at our house reef every day. With its exceptionally flat body and large pectoral fins, the angel shark resembles more of a ray and can often be hard to spot hanging out under the sand.

At our house reef, Bahia Blanca, we are able to observe these beauties at a shallow depth of 12 meters.  And because they are most inactive during the day, we are able to get close enough to identify each individual for the Canary Island Angel Shark Project.
