a dead raggie

that’s a ragged tooth shark, dead at the edge of the sea. a friend found it yesterday and it had a hook in it and a tag on it then. dunno if it escaped the line (they tag and release a lot round here) and then died or what. apparently staff from cape town’s two oceans aquarium (the only way to spend the hours before the airport) are fishing in this area and are going to come and dissect it. i’m not going to watch..i’m busy and besides, i grew up in kwazulu natal and a visit to the natal sharks board along with a shark dissection, was one of the standard school outings in the 70s and 80s. the stepfather who abused me, also designed their stainless steel self draining dissection table, i believe. whatever.

beautiful, prehistoric creature. i’m sorry it’s dead.
