Mystery: Half-Eaten Shark on Florida Beach Raises Speculation About What Killed It
OutdoorHub Reporters 02.23.17
Sharks are typically thought of as the top predator in the vast wide ocean, but a half-eaten shark that washed up on a Florida shore suggests something larger out there might have something to say about that.
According to WKMG, the shark was either a blacktip or a spinner shark, and Beach Safety spokeswoman Tammy Morris said it was definitely attacked by a bigger fish.
A lifeguard posted this photo of the shark on Instagram:
Could this shark be leftovers from a megalodon feeding frenzy? Or perhaps Katherine, the 14-foot great white had something to do with this. She was spotted off the coast of Florida just last month using Ocearch, a global shark tracker that keeps track of where sharks are and where they’re heading – it’s really cool!
