at


Shark expert Michael Rutzen demonstrates the phenomenon of ‘tonic immobility’ in the Bahamas: a natural state of paralysis that animals enter when presented with a threat.

Some sharks can be placed in this state – which generally lasts about fifteen minutes – by turning them upside down.

Glasses, moustaches and cartoon genitals are often drawn on their faces during this time.
