Possible shark ‘photobomb’ that has parents gasping

Take a look at the picture and decide for yourselves what one California mom captured in a photo taken last Friday at Manhattan Beach.

It doesn’t appear to be a dolphin, as she told her kids it was, but that’s probably because June Emerson remembers, “You’re gonna need a bigger boat” and all.

“Jaws” 1975:

Brody: Is it true that most people get attacked by sharks in three feet of water about ten feet from the beach?

Hooper: Yeah.

Emerson took the picture of her son Quinn, 12, and a friend surfing in front of a breaking wave, but it wasn’t until they were driving home that they saw the creature that photobombed off to the side of the boys, the New York Daily News reported.

“It was quite a shock to see,” Emerson told KTLA News.

“Many local surfers and lifeguards have seen this and believe it to be a shark,” she continued. “Of course, I told my kids it was dolphin, as we live at the beach and are in the waters here almost daily.”

According to KTLA, “Sightings of great white sharks are not uncommon near Manhattan Beach.”

Consider this video shot and published on YouTube last month at Manhattan Beach by paddleboarder Jay Dohner who wrote, “I had four different sightings of at least three different sharks.”

“There are two different things in your head,” Dohner reportedly told the Los Angeles Times after his sightings. “Wow, that’s beautiful,’ and ‘We should get out of here.’”

You think?

    It’s just a shark. Melissa Harris Perry is more dangerous, has a bigger fouler mouth. A shark possesses more intelligence and what ever it does it does not do it because it is filled with hate..

      I’m sure that Melissa shares it’s cold lifeless black eyes. Ever seen those eyes up close?? Brrr. .

        Cold lifeless eyes to go into a thoroughly empty head. Give it the ability to speak and you have a fairly useful zombie.

    If the current administration was doing their job they would rid the oceans of sharks.

      I suppose you feel the same say about wolves and every other creature on the planet, right? They have just as much right, if not more, to be here as we do.. It’s people with your mentality that are destroying this beautiful planet!

    Shark mania abounds. The outline of the shark in that picture looks like a nurse shark. Harmless.

    1. RobertNorwood says:

    Likely a Tiger Black Fin or Mako but still dangerous to Small children pets and Adults whom may prefer NOT to be Fish Food not Shark Bait? Pray
