An Australian fisherman named Matthew was fishing at Tweed Heads last month when he hooked a hammerhead…but ended up having A MASSIVE tiger shark on his line instead. The hammerhead -foot shark? He was about 13 feet long.
In accordance with Wikipedia, tiger sharks can grow to be about 10-13 feet long…but most frequently, anglers find sharks closer to the 10-foot end of the spectrum.
In contrast, great white sharks can grow to be 16 feet long (if they’re female). Men max around 13 feet out such as the tiger shark.
Even though a 13-foot tiger shark is not outlandish, these pictures posted to Facebook look completely crazy.
“Jaws ain’t got nothin’ on me.” -A tiger shark
Recall — this shark needed to eat another shark to be hooked with this line.
Why is not it a surprise that this enormous shark was captured off the shore of New South Wales, Australia?
Judging by the various reported sightings of other big specimens in the region, this picture isn’t a hoax. The truth is, families and many sportsmen in New South Wales are expecting to cull the tiger shark population to decrease the level of shark attacks.
In the event you believed that shark was huge, simply wait before you see what bumped into this fisherman…
