Description

No pics, theyere hanging in a big cenote that connects to the sea and provides a flush of cool fresh sea water into the shallow lagoon. You could see their snouts when they came up to breath and occasionlly a flip of the tail at the surface when thy descended again. turbulent water and regulated distance limited th observation, but thi was the first time we'd ever seen them, so it was very interesting.
