Needle-teeth of Grey Nurse sharks were popular trophies in the 1960′s. Taking a set from that species today, in Australia, would guarantee a terrible penalty. The young lady is Tanya Binning - a famous surf girl of the era. Grey Nurse sharks made a dramatic return to the east coast of Australia in 1988. The population has been steadily increasing since. Unreliable out-of-date reports continue to circulate promoting a demise.

The Late Henri Bource - shark victim who became shark film maker with his "Savage Shadows".
Using self-hypnosis Henri Bource convinced himself – and many close friends – he was not handicapped. One friend criticized him for parking in a ‘disabled persons’ parking place! With an artificial leg, from the knee joint down, he walked with a stiff ankle. Soon after his ‘accident’ (he never used the term shark attack) he considered joining the Australian army – as a commando. So powerful is hypnosis.
