10ft Shark bitten by 20ft shark...Real or Fake?

Post by DodgyGambit on Wed Oct 28, 2009 9:44 am

Just seen an article about a 10ft shark having a huge chunk bitten out of him by a bigger shark, it has a picture of the shark bitten, its headline news in Oz but is it real or fake as I cant see much bllod from the bite, as well as the report saying the shark was alive when it was dragged onto the boat.

Make up your own mind:

We're ok, the only thing we have to look out for is the odd turd or two. Oh, and that picture does look fake.

That picture looks more real, the big massive hole in its side still looks dubious though.

It's obviously a publicity stunt to commemorate the 34th year 4 months and 9 days since the release of the Jaws movie!

I like the fact that you thought of that, looked it up then turned it into a kind of joke when it turned out that it didn't coincide.

Debating this at work at the moment (the fun us software developers get up too).

We all agree that if the pictures are fake they have done incredibly well to make two so that look identical. One person thinks that "the vast majority of the shark is blubber like substance similar to whales, which doesn't have a blood supply" which would explain how the insides of the shark look and another says that " that great whites often eat smaller sharks."

Wiki says that..

"For several decades, many ichthyological works, as well as the Guinness Book of World Records, listed two great white sharks as the largest individuals caught: an 11 m (36 ft) great white captured in Southern Australian waters near Port Fairy in the 1870s, and an 11.3 m (37 ft) shark trapped in a herring weir in New Brunswick, Canada in the 1930s. While this was the commonly accepted maximum size, reports of 7.5–10-metre (25–33 ft) great white sharks were common and often deemed credible."

So really 20ft isn't that big compared to past examples.

I'm leaning more towards real now.

Actually new evidence found by a colleague shows that the liver and stomach is supposed to be located where the bite mark is so would expect a rougher bite.

And we would expect there to be more than two pictures of the shark.

Leaning back towards fake

Nice to see you are doing your bit for the promotion of the well balanced arguement.

Yeah, the Killer Whale is more of a deadly predator apparently. Although not as blood-hungry as the shark, when it wants to be it's a fucking killing machine.


Didn't know that about sharks upside down. I've heard that if you come into contact with one you should punch it on the nose because that's where it's most sensitive and it has an electric field around its nose.

Can't say I plan to fight one anytime soon, but it's good to know, eh?

Punch it on the nose and poke it in the eyes. I thought they went into a sort of trance when you turn them upside down. Either way they tend to just float there. Might be a bit difficult trying to get a Great White on t's back though.

I have to say, this is some what pointless info, and I have to say if i were in the waters and a shark was approaching, the last thing I would want to hear someone shout is "Turn it upsidedown, you'll be alright then"
