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.

Love that reflection! Excellent shot.
Capturing an over under is difficult with a heavy housed camera, so I balanced the housing on my head to get this shot. Call me crazy. It was only way to do it.
