Underwater photo contest

Peoples' Vote


I really feel you get a sense of just how prehistoric this animal is from the underwater Photo. Did you know that males can reach lenghts of 6.0 m (20ft) and weigh up to 900 kgs (2000 lb)? This photo was taken in Jardines de La Reina, Cuba.

This image was taken at Devils' Grotto. I had hoped that a tarpon was coming through the hole in the silversides, but I got this Bar Jack instead. I was happy with it anyway.
