The thing with Mako sharks is, they are a more wary species than a lot of sharks. Getting one in range is not as easy as it sounds. One time for my birthday a bunch of my diving buddies bought me a shark dive in S. Cal when I lived there. We had a bunch of Blue Sharks show up in no time at all. We had one, maybe two Makos show up. It was hard to tell. It, or they, would stay way out at the edge of the waters visiblity and never got close. I tried to take pictues of them (or it) but you couldn't tell. To far away and not clear enough. They are one of the more spectacular fighters around though. And fast like a rocket. They have been clocked at better than 50 km/hr, and for being in water, that is smokin fast.
