The photo was caught by a local man who claims he didn't even realize he had captured the image of the shark Wednesday until he was looking at his photos that evening. Get this: local lifeguards tried to pass it off as a surfer, merely swimming back out on his board. Well...I'm no shark expert, but the one they consulted says this was probably a 10-12 foot Great White. The locals who were out in the water that day and learned about it later thought it was good publicity for the shark..proving that not all of them (indeed, few) are looking for human munchies just for something fun to do.
Score one for the sharks.
Have a good weekend...!
