What would you do?


What would you do in this situation? πŸ™‚ I came across this photo on the web. Pretty freaky. Now after doing some research, I found out that yes, this photo is real, but no, it is not a shark. It’s actually a dolphin, probably bottlenose. BUT could you imagine what the surfer thinks? I’m sure he wasn’t thinking, “Oh, this is probably a dolphin…” Whew!

Here’s info on the photo from Snopes.com:
Origins: The photograph displayed above is indeed real, but it doesn’t depict the hair-raising scene most viewers think it does.

This picture was taken by photographer Kurt Jones on 9 April 2003 at Surfrider Beach in Malibu, one of California’s premier surfing beaches. But as the version of the photograph posted on the web indicates, however, the ominous-looking finned creature lurking just beneath the surface of the waves is a dolphin (possibly a bottlenose), not a shark.


One thought on “What would you do?

  1. I’d a checked for the vert tail fin. If positive, GET OUT OF THE WATER. If neg, stay and surf. The dolphins keep the kreeps away.
