It’s natural to imagine Great Whites when thinking of sharks in South Africa, but as the Two Oceans Aquarium of Cape Town will show you, there are plenty of other shark species to embrace. Taken in the predator tank of the aquarium, this display offers aquarium-goers an introduction to the Ragged-Tooth Shark. Here, a female effortlessly glides through the tank whilst the high day sun shoots rays of light through the water to tickle her nose. A school of yellowtail can be seen keeping a careful distance from her genuine smile.

Location: Two Oceans Aquarium, Cape Town, South Africa
