Excellent news for the species, however it is a real shame the animal became stranded again. Sad

He was dead. Ive got a couple of pics regards shark bites on the Cape West Coast. Ive been in the surf and been told to evacuate the water ASAP only to see a fin of a 3meter great white just off the breakers.
Id do anything to help an animal in distress including a shark but not keen on being anywhere near those teeth.

Cleared up the thread a little so as it doesn't look strange to anybody else reading, and put things back in order.

The shark pictured in the surf looks scarey, even for me, and I am a big time animal lover.

I think the shark in the surf is actually a dolphin, look at how pointy the dorsal fin is, and the tail fin looks horizontal and not vertical like a sharks...

Yeah they are quite large, but nothing compared to a Great White obviously!

That Wave is enormous! Anything that could swim in that has to be strong!

No ofcourse not, but thats not a huge animal by any stretch of the imagination, but who knows might've been a shark, still think its a dolphin though haha Smile

Cameras have a tendancy to make things look something they are not. Wink (Not disagreeing or agreeing, I'm inbetween. Marine life isn't my speciality!)

The one with the shark pipping out the spray is a deffinate photoshop. I know this, as I have used photoshop a LOT.

The last one is much more believeable.

The guy was just pushing the shark to one side because the animal was obscuring the view of something else. Suspect
