    Two people were attack by sharks within hours of each other at a South Carolina beach on Monday, with one grandmother receiving a 'bad bite' on her arm. Karren Sites, from Pittsburgh, was holidaying with her family at Myrtle Beach on August 15 when the shark struck. She was standing in waist-deep water with her grandson, Brian, 8, who was enjoying his first full day of vacation.    'I just felt something, I guess, bite me and there was a shark on my arm. I was only in waist-deep water. I kept pushing at it to get it off my arm and it did,' Sites told WPDE. The shocked grandson witnessed the attack from just feet away but said he did not see the shark coming.  'I couldn't even see the shark coming up, but all I saw was the shark jumped up and it didn't even bite all the way, like I saw the movement of the tail go to the side and then she screamed a little bit and as soon as she touched it, it fell into the water,'...

    Frightening footage shows the moment beachgoers were forced to make a mad dash out of the ocean after not one, but two sharks were spotted off a Florida beach over the weekend - the most recent in a swathe of sightings across the east coast.   A resident was able to record the frightening encounter - which transpired Saturday on scenic Neptune Beach, near Jacksonville.  Video shows the two sharks, swimming in clear view of the camera, feet away from several swimmers seemingly unaware of their presence. Someone can be heard shouting, 'Get out the water!' in the bone-chilling clip, which was captured as swimmers rushed out of the knee-deep waters. Footage shows the sharks swimming in the shallows after the frantic evacuation - which saw no residents hurt but left tensions on high along the north Florida coast. It came as the most recent in a slew of shark sightings spanning the entire East Coast, thanks to unseasonably high temperatures that have seen the carnivorous animals wander farther north than normal.

    NASA has warned that a submarine volcano in the Solomon Islands – dubbed the 'sharkcano' because two species of shark are known to live in the submerged crater – is starting to erupt. Satellite images show a plume of discoloured water being emitted from the Kavachi Volcano, which lies about 15 miles south of Vangunu Island, on May 14. The volcano entered an eruptive phase in October 2021, according to the Smithsonian Global Volcanism Program, and the new satellite data suggests activity on several days in April and May 2022. Previous research has shown these plumes of superheated, acidic water usually contain particulate matter, volcanic rock fragments, and sulphur, according to NASA. However, this should not be a problem for the resident sharks, which have adapted to thrive in the hot, acidic conditions.

    DOZENS of sharks were seen swimming in shallow water off the coast of Anclote Island earlier this week. The Pasco County Sherrif's office shared footage from its aviation team of at least 50 sharks swimming off the coast of the island. 1Dozens of sharks gathered in the shallow water Anclote island is just over 30 miles away from Tampa. Local shark researchers told 10 Tampa Bay these are blacktip sharks on their annual migration journey north. Blacktips are known to bite surfers and they could misidentify swimmers as prey. The sheriff's office wrote in a Facebook post: "A day in the water is a fun way to beat our Florida heat, but it's important to be aware of the dangers below the water as well as above."

    Several species of sharks, such as the spiny shark, ha-shark and spot emizole, are found in the Thames, according to a report released Wednesday by the London Zoological Society. In 1957, Thames was declared “biologically dead.” But, since the 90s, the English River has welcomed a large number of birds and marine animals. Among them, sharks, seahorses and eagles, teach us The report by the London Zoological Society was released on Wednesday And aired by several British media outlets BBC And thisEvening standard. Several species of sharks have been particularly observed, such as the spiny shark, ha shark, and spot emizole. The endangered spiny shark derives its name from the thorns in front of its dorsal fin, which can be used for defense. Its venom can cause great discomfort to humans. It is also one of the few poisonous fish in UK waters, along with skates and sharks. According to the report that sharks are born in the Thames and raise chicks there, thanks to improved water quality and oxygen levels. “Neglected and Threatened” Ecosystems Alison Debney of the Zoological...
    A swimmer at a popular Sydney beach has unwittingly come within inches of a grey nurse shark while floating on his back in shallow water. The close call was shown in remarkable drone footage shot above Maroubra Beach on Tuesday evening around 6.30pm, a time of day sharks are more likely to come close to shore to feed. In the video a man wearing boardshorts can be seen facing the beach in waist-deep water as the tide carries him towards a two-metre long grey nurse shark - which he does not see. A wave pulls him back and drops him to a spot where the shark is just over his right shoulder.

    A paddleboarder nearly became shark bait after he fell off his board in the middle of the ocean while surrounded by a pack of the deadly fish. Brodie Moss, an Australian filmmaker and ocean enthusiast, was enjoying a day out in the open sea when he stumbled across a group of sharks swimming near the surface.

    Hundreds of sharks in West Florida have headed inland to escape the deadly red tide that's killed more than 600 tons of marine life in the region. Different shark species, including bonnethead, blacktip, nurse and lemon sharks have been spotted darting through Longboat Key and into the canals of Buttonwood Harbor, far from their usual habitat. 'You saw fins at first, just popping up,' resident John Wagman told WFLA 8. 'Just something I'd never seen in the canal before.' Reports of marine predators in the bay started surfacing last week. 'You could literally walk across the canal on the backs of the sharks in the water,' resident Janelle Branowner told FOX 13 Tampa Bay. 'We don't have healthy water in the bay right now.' The sharks are invading the area because their usual habitats in Tampa Bay, Sarasota Bay and along the coast from Pasco to Sarasota Counties, have been infested with red tide, which is caused by unusually high blooms of the algae Karenia brevis. The algae kills marine life by producing a potent toxin that affects their central...

    Chantelle Doyle never saw the great white shark that attacked her on that fateful morning two months ago. But its bullet-shaped head and dead, black eyes were clearly visible to her partner, Mark Rapley, who was surfing near her in the clear blue waters off Port Macquarie. With its picture-postcard coves and beaches, that part of New South Wales is typical of the idyllic coastline that makes Australia so attractive to both surfers and swimmers. Yet it was here in paradise that death seemed so inevitable for Chantelle, a 35-year-old environmental scientist and mother-of-one from Sydney. Great whites have one of the most powerful bites of any living animal — exerting three times more force than a lion and 20 times that of the human jaw. With 300 serrated, triangular teeth arranged in several rows, they shake their prey from side to side to create a sawing action that rips off chunks of flesh. Chantelle Doyle and Mark Rapley appear on 'This Morning' in August  Recreational scuba diver Gary Johnson had just suited up with his partner Karen...
    (CNN)One morning in early October, a now-familiar scene unfolded on a beach in Western Australia. A shark had attacked a surfer, who was missing. Authorities sent drones into the sky for aerial surveillance, emergency workers jumped onto boats to scour the area, and medics waited on shore.Days of searching uncovered the man's surfboard, but his body was never found. He was counted as Australia's seventh shark attack victim this year -- an alarming spike that hasn't been seen in the country for 86 years.This year's attacks have taken place in a number of different states, including Queensland, New South Wales, and Tasmania. Among them is a diver who also went missing in January after a suspected great white attack.

    The Orca is headed back to the waters of New England, but this time, its mission isn’t to hunt sharks. It’s to help save them. A group of ocean advocates and movie buffs is turning an old lobster fishing vessel into a replica of the Orca, the boat captained by the grizzled shark hunter Quint in “Jaws.” The work is taking place on Martha’s Vineyard, where Steven Spielberg shot the blockbuster movie in the 1970s. The occasion doesn’t call for a bigger boat so much as one with a different purpose, said Vineyard native David Bigelow, who acquired the craft and is heading up the project. When finished, he said, Orca III will be used as an educational tool to help the public understand sharks and as a research vessel for scientists. The project is dear to the heart of Bigelow, who appeared as an extra in “Jaws,” and to that of his drama teacher Lee Fierro, who played the mother of a shark attack victim. Reports of shark sightings on some New England beaches in recent years moved him...
