This is pretty old news now, but it’s been sitting in the queue and we wanted to get it out there for the archives. It would be pretty intense to see one of these great beasts lying on the beach.
Morris Island, South Carolina
A great white shark washed ashore on a Lowcountry beach. The 13-foot-long shark was found at Morris Island last month by fishermen.
The Department of Natural Marine Biologists says the shark may have starved to death or been stranded.
“They are extremely rare in this area. They’re actually rare throughout their range. Their large apex predators, so there’s basically not a lot of them around.. And they are actually solitary animals,” DNR Marine Biologist, Josh Loefer said.
Great white sharks like cool coastal waters and are typically between 12 and 15 feet in length.
