Shark found on Darkwood Beach


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.

According to shark world, the shortfin mako shark also is known as the blue pointer and bonito shark.

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.

    • Please don’t be scared. The same SHARKS-WORLD quoted in the article goes on to say:
      “It does not represent a grave danger to humans since it lives far from the coast.”

  1. speculations are that some one planted it there because they’are trying to get rid of the water park…real badmind and jealous if that’s the case.

  2. A lot of ignorance in this article. They are not dangerous to humans. We are to them.
