That beautiful creature belongs in the wild ocean, not some some small tank just to entertain shallow, cruel and heartless people who thinks it's either 'kawaii' or 'sugoi'...

A natural predator in the wild being confined to a tank by man for his own amusement in exchange for guaranteed feed and medical attention?

and they say we don't have heart, but I'm sure that shark knows we do,it can hear the sound of our hearts pumping all that nutrient rich blood flowing through our bodies whenever we are in the water. That underwater Santa better watch out or else he'll end up as feed and the one needing medical attention.
