Most Distinguished Noses

The blue shark is easily recognizable by its muzzle, longer than it is wide with a slight upward bend. It gets its name, however, from the bright blue color of its skin. This creature is also notable for its very large eyes and the nearly black tips of its fins. They live almost exclusively in the open sea and can dive up to 350 meters deep, therefore, it’s unlikely you will ever encounter these sleek swimmers near the coast. Getting to dive with blue sharks is an incredible experience as they are very curious and like to swim close to divers. Because of their curiosity it is important to treat them with respect, not attempting to touch or handle them in any way.
