These lemon sharks at the surface on a recent trip to Tiger Beach, Bahamas, seem to smile, to grin. And if that gets them more sympathy to get people to protect sharks: great, they need our support! No sharks-no oceans;-(. But we have to be careful with anthropomorphizing animals, with giving them human characteristics They are different and they deserve our respect for what they are: apex predators that keep our oceans healthy.
