When we went to the park it was unbelivable. I wasn’t that interested at first, I thought it was more of a boy thing, but WOW what we learn’t from Ruben our tour guide at the park was fantastic to say the least. But what blew me away the most was the intence sound of their snap. He said that the impact of their bite is the same as being hit by five cars at once.That is one place I never want to be (in their jaws). We learnt so much that is proberly common sence to alot of people but I didn’t know that they can’t eat under water because they will drown. And they can stay under water with their kill for up to an hour before they eat it. We took about 120 photos it was a great day.
