Let rare shark grow
LEON Botha was fishing at Nine Mile Beach a couple of weeks ago and caught an interesting looking sand shark.
"I found that the nose was broken and bent back, so that I could carry it like a bag. The nose had grown back in that position and was rock hard and could not be straightened," he said.
"I never applied a lot of force to straighten it, as I did not know if it would be painful."
After taking a few photographs, Leon released it back into the ocean.
"I would like to ask anyone who would catch it again, not to keep it, but release it again and see how big it can get, and how long we still can catch it in that area," he said.
