Everybody has gathered, its a little bit like an operating theatre (except cold!) with all the instruments on the table beside the dissection table. Knives are being sharpened:
Anton has sharpened 9 so far.
Measurements have been taken:
From tip of upper jaw to the deepest part of the fluke notch – 2.31 metres
Girth – 1.2 metres
Dorsal fin is situated far back along the body – 1.5m from its snout
Dorsal fin height – 7cm
Span of fluke – 60cm
He’s a male.
They’ve found 12 bite marks so far, these are assumed to be from a cookie-cutter shark (isistius braziliensis). These won’t have been cause of death.
