    Shark jumps out of water and into swimming pool

    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/news...ming-pool.html

    Can you imagine riding down a water slide followed by a shark?

    too bad for the shark though.. I'm wondering if this has ever happened before.. and is a one foot high barrier enough to keep a shark out?

    Why would you build a swimming pool right next to shark exhibits?

    if you have ever seen any of chris fallows photography of great white sharks breaching you'd know a 1 ft barrier is nothing..

    painting the mental pic
    16ft + shark weighing in at 1000lb +
    leaping completely out of the water.


    this should answer the question

    Re: Shark jumps out of water and into swimming pool

    shaz : we had one caught on video breaching a month ago... LOL just of a metropolitan beach..
    the so called experts believed that they only breach near south africa...
    but now they have to re-think their shark nets that are supposed to protect the metro beaches..

    Yeap! Its kinda scary. One of our friends does the flying shark patrol and he said that if the shark nets really worked they wouldnt need to do the shark watch

    Re: Shark jumps out of water and into swimming pool

    did you hear about the exploding whale? In the streets in Japan a whale was being carried away on a truck and then, BOOM, The whale was sick and died, people think it was a build up of pressure from the way it was carried on three wires, others believe it was a part of what killed the whale. There was a documentary on BBC a couple months back on it, unfortunately i couldn't find anything on youtube.

    Okay so I just had to go look that up and apparently it was a build up of gases inside the decomposing whale.
