Wamba (Shark), eels and mallet

Wamba (sharks) are dangerous animals, they can attack us if we swim in salt water. Here in freshwater areas we have small river sharks that we catch with fishing lines. Saltwater people catch them with lines or fishing spears, it’s a food that we all eat. Ladies sometimes use the vertebrae of wamba to make necklaces for sale.
