confused interesting pic....

OK... not sure if this photo is for real... but its interesting.
==========
The photo was taken in Scottburgh (KZN South Africa) during the sardine run.
Notice how clear the water is around the sharks as the sardiens stay away from them. The light grey areas are the sardiens.

Compare the size of the sharks to that of the cars on the beach!!!

I've seen in real life similar situations off Nth Stradbroke Island and Fraser Island up here in queensland whilst flying. (not sure about the size of the sharks in the photo though..) The sharks just carve through the schools of fish though-quite a sight to see.

There was a phenomenom witnessed a few years back in WA that saw whales and sharks working together to force huge schools of fish against hard coastline. The area of fish was absolutely massive, and sharks and whales took turns in gorging themselves on the schools. The act of fencing fish against the coast wasn't new, but whales and sharks helping each other, and the sheer size of the school was!

i don't know if that's real...
those sharks are huge! they'd have to be 6m at least, if you compare them to the parked cars. plus, the water colour around the sharks looks funny - it's a different colour to the rest of the beach.

dunno... i admit i'm a sceptic!

yeah... the size of the sharks is just a little too big for my liking...

looks like they could swallow an entire car!!!

When I was in Fiji once, I was watching the water and saw a lot of dark area's... I thought they where rocks... then when I walked into the water... the dark area moved.??? I though 'what the?'

so I swam under water and there where MILLIONS of little fish there! I swam right through the middle of them... they where on top, on the side and underneath me... it was very weird!!

And the misses wonders why I refuse to swim. With those bloody things swimming around I dont think so! When I lived up in Queensland I used to go swimming at Tannum Sands every so often. I wasn't unusual to see a shark swim past on the other side of the sand bar.

Yeah, they're too big....and too close to shore if they're about 2 car lengths!! And it looks like they're turning back so you'd say they were even closer to shore?!
