Additional comments:
We got a call that a WS was caught and tied up near the shore of a beach resort. We responded expecting a huge WS but was suprised to see this very young (could be a neonate) WS. After getting some measurement and documented the sighting, we immediately release the shark farther away from the fishermen. Hope this one would able to survive and grow to maturity.
