Don't want to scare anyone....but these photos are too cool not to share. This Big Eye Thresher Shark was caught out at sea so no worries about swimming. Wink These photos were taken by the docks near Moomba.

I'm laughing at the idiot who is sticking his hand near the mouth!

I do feel kind of bad for it, though. It is a beautiful looking fish!

I was doing the same thing.... Laughing

I don't know all of the details yet around it....still trying to find out.

Reminds me of the time we saw a shark swimming just a few yards from the shoreline at South Beach. He was swimming parallel to the shoreline and everyone yelled to get out of the water - then we stood there and watched him swim by slowly. Fifteen minutes later, everyone went back into the water again! Shocked

Wow...nice fish! Is that its eyes that are so big? I never realized they were so huge (or maybe its just that species?).

This past w/e there was a Mako Mania contest here in Point Pleasnat Beach, NJ...the winner caught one 295 lbs!!! Last years winner was 265! They had a huge celebration at a local marina on Sunday! Was fun!

It's just that particular species. We looked it up yesterday and found this info on it: http://www.efsa.co.uk/record/sharkbigeye.htm
