Sharkbait’s name, and his/her mark, obviously come from a shark attack he/she suffered in 2003. Sharkbait was first spotted shortly after the attack, with widespread, fresh wounds, moving slowly. The New Zealand Whale and Dolphin Trust team were unsure if he/she would survive. Thankfully, Sharkbait’s wounds healed by themselves over the next months, and were fully healed when he/she was seen a year later. It was a very impressive recovery!
