Meet Manoela...

Off the coast of Brazil, in the tropical paradise of Fernando Do Noronha swims a female lemon shark called Manoela… From early childhood to adulthood, her extraordinary senses allow her to detect scents, sounds and even the tiny electric fields of her prey. In particular, she specializes in a hunting technique that has only ever been observed in this spot: hunting sardines in the waves. The confusion created in the sandy shores to catch their furtive preys has given her species the local name, “papa-areia” – sand eaters! Catch the wave and swim among these clever hunters.
