Charlie and the Adventure: June 23, 2010

Charlie helps WhySharksMatter and South Carolina Department of Natural Resources scientists count, measure, and tag newborn sharks like this scalloped hammerhead pup. This data is vital for shark management plans. Charlie uses himself for scale to show how small these animals are when they are young. Scalloped hammerheads can grow to more than 10 feet in length.

    Charlie seems to have aged considerably since joining your expedition. I think you’re working him too hard. P.S. That shark is adorable!
