A post on Reddit has led Internet residents to question what happened to the sea creature.
A shark found half-cut and swept from a Canadian beach caused Internet users to be confused by what caused their deaths.
Reddit’s user posted a scary photo of a shark’s decomposing body. In the headline, the user showed that he saw a “poor man” swimming on Oak Island in Canada.
Ever since the post was shared on Reddit, they have been speculating about what happened to the sea creature. Internet users fear the shark was killed, with one user claiming it was a terrible propeller accident.
“It wasn’t a ship accident! It wasn’t a propeller. It wasn’t a coral reef. And it wasn’t Jack the Ripper,” one user wrote. Another user remarked, “This is a shark, a great white shark. Sure not very white, but I’ve seen many sharks eaten by other sharks. There will always be bigger fish. “
A third user supported the claim that it was a shark attack that halved the small shark. Redditu wrote, “Another shark will do this every day.”
With a viral post asking “any ideas what kind of (shark) it is?” some users even took the opportunity to ridicule the condition of the animal. One user jokingly said, “It’s obviously a half shark.” Another hilarious quote is the well-known “remnants”. The type of shark that came ashore remains officially unknown. However, many users say that the deformed body resembles “Atlantic Sharpnose” due to the narrow nose and black back of the dorsal fin.
Atlantic Sharpnoses are usually a small species of shark with an aerodynamic body, making it easy to carry larger prey. According to NOAA, Fisheries is commonly found along the Western Atlantic Ocean in New Brunswick, Canada on the Gulf of Mexico.
