The massively plump predator, estimated to measure at least 16 feet and weigh 1.6 tons, was captured on March 30 off King George Sound, and fitted with an internal tag in a process biologists described as groundbreaking.
But the photo atop this post, revealing the incredible girth of the shark as it was turned over for the tagging process, was released Tuesday. That sent websites scrambling to post the photo and update the story.
The female shark’s nickname: Joan of Shark.
Joan is among many sharks that are tagged as part of an alternative to culling, to let biologists know their whereabouts, in part so swimmers and surfers can be warned.
Since Joan was tagged she has been detected near Albany beaches several times, including nine times last Saturday. (Albany is in the extreme south of Western Australia, and is not in the region in which culling is occurring.)

Q: How are the sharks cognizant enough to keep biting people while they’re flying through the air?

A: If you were a shark and you found yourself flying through the air, wouldn’t you keep biting? I think you’d be pretty pissed about being plucked out of your nice familiar ocean where you’re king of the predators, and you’d probably take it out on whoever got in your way. Honestly, I don’t understand why people are so perplexed by this concept. The logic is undeniable.

Q: How many sharks does an average sharknado contain? How many sharks are ejected per 5-minute period?

A: I can’t count that high.

Q: Aren’t the sharks at least as much victims of the sharknado as humans are?

A: Ah, well, now we’re into the larger philosophical issues of the film. What does it say about humans that when poor displaced sharks are ravaged by nature’s uncaring fury we try to kill them with chainsaws? I think we need to take a good long look in the mirror over that one.

Holy shit which shark is this

It’s a tiger shark!

#they can grow longer than sixteen feet!!! #GARBAGE CANS OF THE SEA #tiger sharks will eat just about any fucking thing

THE BEST. Nearly got into a fight in grade school because someone insisted great white sharks were more dangerous. UM NO cos great whites prefer seals whereas tiger sharks like the way you AND your boat tastes.
