The cool and friendly La Jolla leopard sharks! Every summer in the La Jolla’s Matlahuayl State Marine Reserve (La Jolla Shores) receives a large group of leopard sharks, mostly pregnant females, seeking warmer waters and sandy flats to give birth. They are perfectly safe and you can swim or snorkel next to them, but please keep a safe distance, not so much for you but for them. They are there to give birth, so they don’t like to be harassed and you must remember that they are in a Marine Protected Area so they are protected by law! Still you can appreciate them as they swim next to you. #summer #sandiego #lajolla #sdmpas #sandiegompas #sharks #photooftheday #instagood
