Susanna is easy to recognize by the special form of the black spot on her first dorsal fin. She used to be a very curious shark but in 2009 she was much more quick and shy. There was a string of rope or line hanging out from her left gill (see photo on this page). Maybe she has been caught on a fishing line. In 2010 she was not seen. She was back again in 2011. This time with an old fishing hook with some line in her mouth. See photo. We did not see her in July 2013. Hopely she is still around somewhere.
