|“||Meanwhile, the crew was building a cage for my protection.||”|
The shark cage is a cage used by Nigel Marven to protect himself from large marine predators during hazardous dives.
Design and use
The shark cage is made of metal. Unlike typical shark cage, The Ancient Mariner's shark cage is spherical in shape rather than a cube. It is design that way so that the jaws of large predators would slide off of the cage.
The shark cage is assembled on board The Ancient Mariner and there are eight parts. At the top of the top half, there is an opening for divers to enter. The cage can hold two people.
In Sea Monsters
The shark cage was used to protect Nigel from Megalodon in the Pliocene.
