Ferdinand is a 4.3m male white shark. He seems like a well natured shark around our vessel, perhaps suggesting he has been previously familiar with us, and so further analysis of our database in the future may allow us to profile him from the past.
He is appropriately named also for Ferdinand the Bull, from the children’s book They Story of Ferdinand, who would rather smell flowers than fight in bullfights. This is because he is a big heavy shark who, although slow and casual, was not tentative or nervous, but was not really interested in chasing baits, but more into cruising around enjoying the scenery!
Ferdinand was present at the Neptunes in October 2011 during our winter season.
