    It is fantastic to see the Basking Shark, and for Ryan to be lucky enough to film this beautiful creature in its environment.

    Ever since the film Jaws, sharks have been hunted and slaughtered in there thousands for no other reason that they are there, alive and to some people, a danger.

    We have to remember we are invading their environment and we have no right to persecute this beautiful creature.

    However, one must look at Asia, and the attitude of people there, not all, and their barbaric way in which they hunt, slaughter and treat other living creatures as if they have no right to be living. When it comes to a nation or group of people disrespecting nature and life, well we need look no further….

    Remember, when we invade their territory, do not expect to be treated any differently than another source of food. You are meat, food and the sustainment of life.

    Mind you, the most dangerous animal on the planet are homo-sapiens, combined with the human made concept of money which is natures nemisis, put simply.
