    SPOOKY pictures show an abandoned zoo including the remains of great white shark floating in a tank. Footage shows the huge four metre predator nestled deep in the once bustling grounds of the Wildlife Wonderland Park in Victoria, Australia. 5The remains of the four metre shark had been stored in a green tank since its death in 1998 5Most of its teeth and structure had been preservedCredit: Rosie The Shark/Facebook The taxidermy shark was suspended in a green tank of formaldehyde and had almost all of it's razor-sharp teeth intact. The eerie find had been captured by urban explorer Luke McPherson, who uploaded a video of the unlikely discovery to social media.   He said: “Once I got the light behind the tank I was like ‘wow that’s creepy’!” “The fumes were so bad you couldn’t last longer than a minute in that room, the formaldehyde must have been evaporating. “The tank was huge and in bad condition, with a rusting metal frame and smashed panels of glass and trash thrown inside.” The shark – who was later named as Rosie...
    A WOMAN who jetted off to Turkey to get new teeth has revealed - just months later - her dentist has issued her with a VERY dire warning. Jak Reid, from Paisley, Renfrewshire, shared the results of her cosmetic dentistry with her 69,000 fans on TikTok earlier this year. 3Jak Reid has been issued with a startling warning by her dentistCredit: TikTok/@jakreid 3Jak jetted out to Turkey for £3.5 teeth workCredit: TikTok/@jakreid She was branded “silly” and a “wee girl with no brain” by some people for getting the new smile, something she said didn’t bother her. But yesterday she released audio of what her “lovely” dentist in the UK had said. The dentist said: “I’m just going to say this, I know you’re not going to want to hear this. A lot of tissue’s been removed here… there’s not much else you can go from here apart from implants.” Jak, who claimed her teeth were currently fine, didn’t fully explain why she had visited her dentist who she had no criticism of.

    THE MYSTERY surrounding a deformed tooth belonging to an ancient megalodon shark may have finally been solved. In a new study, researchers looked at a four-inch tooth belonging to a 65-foot megalodon that features a groove going down the middle. 1Large megalodon tooth versus a great white shark toothCredit: Getty Megalodons are an extinct species of mackerel shark that lived approximately 23 to 3.6 million years ago. These prehistoric creatures can measure up to 70 feet – about the size of three long SUVs. Given their large size, it only stands that megalodon's teeth are also quite large, growing up to 7 inches long. However, because shark teeth don't typically suffer trauma, this particular megalodon tooth baffled a team of researchers from North Carolina State University.

    (CNN) — Megalodon, the giant shark that lived more than 23 million years ago and was inspiration for the movie “The Meg,” was almost four times bigger than the great white shark that cruises our oceans today. However, the two shark species, which once coexisted, likely hunted some of the same prey. This competition could potentially have been one reason why the 65-foot-long (20-meter-long) megalodon went extinct, a new study has suggested.

    Johnny Depp snickered in the courtroom as his childhood friend took the stand Wednesday morning in the actor's defamation trial against Amber Heard.  The court heard from Isaac Baruch, who had known Depp since they were teenagers growing up in Florida and has been described as his best friend. Baruch later moved to California where he worked as a musician and artist and the office manage at the notorious club in Los Angeles that Depp used to own. Baruch testified that Depp loved his artwork so much that he gave him a penthouse apartment he owned in the Eastern Columbia Building rent free and paid him around $100,000 during the more than three years he lived there.  Asked if he took up Depp's offer he said: 'Yeah, of course!' which earned a laugh from the public gallery and Depp.   Baruch told the jury how Johnny had given him roughly $100,000 over four years to work on his art. He said he had to tell Johnny his paintings were taking longer than expected to finish.  'He looks at me and starts...

The pictures were taken from just six feet away by the co-founder of Be A Shark Adventure Travel, Nikki Brant Sevy, 51, at Guadeloupe Island in Mexico. "Guadalupe Island has over four-hundred individually identified white sharks, and I've been lucky enough to photograph over two-hundred of them," said Nikki. "When sharks are serious about getting a hang bait they often make a fast vertical approach from the depths. "I saw Nicole approaching from below and was able to visually track her as she instigated her approach. ...
    Though shark season is past its peak, a great white shark was recently spotted off the coast of Massachusetts attacking a seal, the Atlantic White Shark Conservancy said recently.

    If the people of Amity Island had this, than Jaws may have turned out a lot differently. Researchers at engineering company Cardno and Bond University have found that a $500 rechargeable device that clips onto surfboards reduces the chances of a shark attack by two-thirds. The experts tested the device, known as Rpela V2 on great whites at Salisbury Island, Western Australia, long considered a 'hotspot' for sharks.

    Researchers may have discovered a nursery of hammerhead sharks off the coast of Florida, which if confirmed, would be the first ever identified in that part of the planet. Experts have found that a small section of Biscayne Bay, a lagoon on the Atlantic coast of South Florida, may be a region where the endangered sharks give birth and where they spend many of their formative years.

    Species of sharks that normally swim in waters near the equator have started to trek north due to climate change, officials have warned. A number of blacktip reef sharks have been spotted recently off New York's coastline, including one incident Thursday morning at Jones Beach State Park, CBS News reports. Local officials are concerned because the sharks are not native to the area and could pose a threat to swimmers. 'Our guards spotted numerous — not just one, but numerous blacktip reef sharks,' said Hempstead town supervisor Don Clavin told the news outlet.  Sharks that normally swim in warmer waters have trekked north due to climate change, including the blacktip reef shark (pictured) Blacktip reef sharks have been spotted recently off New York's coastline, including one incident Thursday morning at Jones Beach State Park 'These are really unique sharks…they're Caribbean sharks.

    It's Tinseltown's fault.  Quotes like 'You're gonna need a bigger boat' or 'Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water' are part of cinematic history, but Hollywood's shark movies overwhelmingly portray the apex predators in a negative light, severely hindering conservation efforts, a new study suggests. According to the research, 96 percent of 109 shark films listed on online database iMDB portray interactions between humans and the apex predators as 'overtly' threatening. Just three percent of the films 'covertly' portray shark-human interactions as potentially threatening, while one film did not include any potentially threatening interaction. Much of the impact stems from the 1975 blockbuster 'Jaws,' which not only redefined the summer blockbuster forever, but drastically changed how society views sharks, in particular great whites. 96 percent of 109 shark films listed on online database iMDB portray interactions between humans and the apex predators as 'overtly' threatening Much of the impact stems from the 1975 blockbuster 'Jaws,' which not only redefined the summer blockbuster forever, but drastically changed how society views sharks, in particular...
    Sharks almost disappeared from the world's oceans around 19 million years ago, with population numbers plummeting by more than 90 per cent, a study found. Researchers led from Yale University constructed a record of shark diversity and abundance spanning the last 40 million years based on fossil teeth and scales. The episode came, the team explained, at a time when shark numbers had been some ten times greater than they are today, and they never truly recovered. This fundamental shift in the ecological composition of pelagic predators paved the way for the for the large, migratory shark lineages that now dominate our oceans. However, the cause of this mysterious 'massive shark die-off' and its wider implications are, at least for the present, unknown to scientists.

    Smile makeover Gabriela Alvarez, 54, of San Jose has a brand-new smile, courtesy of two local oral surgeons. On Nov. 17 Alvarez received a permanent set of teeth from Robert Beech, DDS, and John Reid, DMD, of Beech and Reid Oral and Dental Implant Surgery through the surgery’s Second Chance program. Alvarez underwent full-arch restoration, a procedure typically costing $50,000, free of charge. Alvarez was chosen from applicants from Sunnyvale, Milpitas and San Jose, where the surgery has offices. The mother of three was never kissed during her previous marriage because of her dental condition. The housecleaner said she rarely brushed her teeth as a child growing up in Colotlán, Jalisco Mexico, as her family couldn’t afford essentials like a toothbrush. In her application, Alvarez wrote, “I want to feel like a complete woman again and feel like what I see in the mirror makes me happy.” “Gabriela has been through a great deal and we are thrilled for her to begin this life-changing journey of health and happiness,” Beech said in a statement. “It brings us great joy...

    TERRIFYING prehistoric megalodon sharks may have been even bigger than previously thought. Scientists have revealed what they think are the true measurements of the ancient creatures with teeth the size of hands and fins the size of humans. 6 Megalodon sharks are thought to have ruled the ocean millions of years ago. Fans of the 2018 Jason Statham film 'The Meg' should know the gigantic predator well. Uk researchers from the University of Bristol and Swansea University looked at rare fossils of megalodon teeth and used mathematical calculations to work out their full size. They think the creature would have grown up to 59 feet (18 metres) in length. 6The researchers revealed this image of a) 16 metre adult b) a 3 metre new-born; c) an 8 metre juvenile and d) an artistic reconstruction of a 16 metre adult megalodon, all compared to a humanCredit: Wales News Service 6A megalodon tooth compared to a great white shark's toothCredit: Rex Features 6Their fins are thought to have been human sizedCredit: Wales News Service That would make it around four times the...
    (CNN)The true size of a gigantic prehistoric megalodon shark that ruled the oceans millions of years ago has been revealed for the first time -- and it had teeth as big as hands, and a fin as tall as a human adult.Researchers at the University of Bristol, in southwestern England, and at the Swansea University, in south Wales, used mathematical calculations to work out the size of the megalodon shark from rare fossil remains of its teeth.Has the great white shark really vanished from Cape Towns waters?The findings were published Thursday in the journal Scientific Reports.Researchers told CNN that the giant shark species would have grown up to 18 meters (59 feet) in length and weighed about 48 tons, which is larger than any other shark known to have existed and more than twice the size of a great white shark.With teeth as big as human hands, it would have had a bite force of more than 10 tons, dwarfing that of a great white shark's bite force of two tons, researchers said.Read MoreIts tail would have been as long...
