Blacktip 015 Bolette


BT15 Fin Print right and left 2013

                                                Date of first observation: July 2006

                                                Place: Hin Phae

                                                Estimated size:1,5 m

                                                Sex: Female


Bolette not seen for many years was back in a bad condition. Somehow she managed to get herself entangled in a rope which now is around her neck just behind the gill openings. She is clearly annoyed by this, and I don't think she will survive. The rope has cut deep into the skin. You could see the suckerfish always very interested in the exposed areas of the wound. Frustrating not to be able to help her.
