Man discovers lemon shark nursery in South Florida waters

MIAMI, Oct. 6 (UPI) — A Florida man who spent about a month searching for a shark nursery shared video of the baby lemon sharks he encountered at the end of his journey.

A video posted to YouTube by user ZeroEye shows the man filming himself as he walks through the shallow waters in South Florida with lemon shark pups swimming around his legs.

The sharks don’t seem bothered by the man’s presence, even when he dunks his camera under water for a closer look at the pups.

“After a month or so of searching I managed to find a local shark nursery in South Florida. These are lemon shark pups and they start their life off in the coastal mangrove estuaries of South Florida,” the uploader wrote.
