- On a broader scale - that for sharks rather early. They love warmer water. Most likely that divers have met with seldevoj a shark. It, truth, on the size approximately 2 - 2,5 metres. And here it is a question about 6 - a metre copy. However water deforms proportions. And to the skin-diver from a fright fish could seem to the huge.
