Turns out a shark isn’t the most terrifying thing you can find at the beach.
Even scarier than seeing a live shark, is seeing a shark that’s half-eaten – meaning there’s something even bigger lurking around.

That’s what beachgoers at Florida’s New Smyrna Beach stumbled across Saturday morning, Volusia County (Fla.) Beach Safety officials said. The half-eaten shark had washed onto shore.
According to WKMG , it’s unclear what type of predator bit the shark or how far offshore it happened, but officials say it was certainly attacked by a bigger fish.
Citing beach safety spokeswoman Tammy Morris, WKMG reports that the shark was either a blacktip or a spinner shark.
While half-eaten sharks do not wash ashore very often, it’s not unheard of, Morris said.
