Three different people were bitten by a shark during three different attacks in under three hours at a Florida beach, local authorities have confirmed. The shark encounters occurred in the same general area at New Smyrna Beach Sunday, WFTV reported. All three victims suffered lacerations, though none of the injuries are believed to be life-threatening.
Do you know what a sleeping great white shark looks like? It’s never been seen before. Until now. A robotic submersible captured the first-ever footage of a great white taking a nap, and you can see it innocently catch some zzzs with its mouth hanging wide open. It looks maybe seven percent less frightening than a great white that’s awake.
She’s estimated to be around 20 feet long, as wide as a small elephant — which likely indicates pregnancy — and at least 50 years old.
