A lemon shark - called Manoela - grows up in the waters of Fernando do Noronha off the coast of Brazil.
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. She seems to take advantage of the confusion created by the foam and the rollers that stir the sand of the bays to catch these fleeting fish...
When we look closer behind the breakers, we discover unsuspected alliances and unusual behaviors…
