That's One VERY Big Critter!

According to the always hysterical shark media in Australia this week, a 20 foot Great white shark is stalking the waters - or at least something as big as that with teeth.

This time though we had to pause for a moment.

The image of a ten foot white shark with two simply titantic bites out of it was enough to make us church going believers in "20 foot sharks."

The thing that got to us was the fact these bites appear to be singular events. What animal on the planet, aside from a killer whale, could possibly take 200-300 pound bites out of prey items in one pass?

Now where's our shark cage?

At the rate the "Monster Shark" is changing sizes in media reports, they'll have it narrowed down to a C. megalodon by the end of the week.

Is the photo real and is there confirmation...looks absolutely MASSIVE.

No way photoshop, but the size of the animal that took this bite varies by the estimated or confirmed size of the shark in the image.


Are there 20 foot whites in today's oceans?

Perhaps, perhaps.

Sky News has an alternate angle of the mauled shark.

How about the story is that someone cut it up to make it appear like there is some monster shark going around ?
