Residents early this morning discovered what they say is a Mako Shark on Darkwood Beach this morning.
The animal was already dead when residents discovered it.
It is not known how the shark ended up there.
The main theory at his time is that it was washed ashore.
The discovery has already lead to social media comments of people who are fearful to swim there.
It is a fast speed-swimming shark that has been called “the peregrine falcon of the sharks” in allusion to the fastest bird in the world.
It is considered an animal dangerous to humans because of the speed which can attack and its ability to jump into the fishing boats.
