check out this video, I promise you will be impressed!





Pilot Steve Irwin was astonished after spotting a mass of more than 100,000 sharks swimming just 100 yards off Florida's sandy beaches. The long-time fisherman and marine technology expert was cruising 300ft above the clear waters in his helicopter on Sunday when he came across the astonishing scene...

The 50-year-old - who shares his name with the late Australian 'Crocodile Hunter' - whipped out his smartphone to capture the masses of deadly predators, which spanned a 20-mile stretch of water.
The sharks - believed to be Spinners, between 3ft and 7ft long - were heading north and swimming parallel to the east coast's idyllic white beaches between Fort Lauderdale and exclusive Jupiter Island...


Small groups of strays were even spotted milling around swimmers who appeared to be blissfully unaware of the danger, although no injuries were reported.





Could you imagine, unknowingly swimming into this mass of Sharks? Apparently the line was roughly 20 miles long!

That is amazing. Seeing that number of sharks grouped together is almost unfathomable. S&F

Thats just awesome, I have been to West Palm beach a few times before I can see why the sharks would want to be there. It's absolutely gorgeous there. A little pricey for my cheap ass but pretty.

Yes, we have to wonder what impact the human population has on drawing in sharks.

If I was a shark at that beach, I know I would be thinking.

when the sharks are packing it up and leaving, the alarm bells should be ringing.

I was just thinking that. Wether or not this was related to an impending earthquake? Mass animal migrations are spotted frequently before earthquakes. Lets hope this is just a normal migration that we currently werent very aware of!

It's funny the report says they where headed North. Other reports coming in are talking about thousands of birds heading North as well.

Connection?

OK so we have mass animal die offs, massive bird migration north instead of south (including birds that are NOT migratory), massive shark migrations, a lot of back to back volcanic eruptions, devastating flooding in Aussie, Brazil and Pakistan, with another cyclone heading towards Aussie, the storm of the century, 7+ earthquakes have become the norm, etc...this seems fishy (no pun lol) to anyone else?

you just had to pull the fishy pun ?


But yes, these times are getting interesting.

But we have to ask ourselves. are these event becoming more prevalent? Or is our ever increasingly interconnected world just better at spreading the news? Its really hard to say

Hmm i'm trying to decide whether this is normal or not.

Here is a video from 08' of apparently the same type of event:

Gives me hope for our global wildlife stocks..

Just hope they stay away from China if they value keeping their fins.

S&F, great find OP!

However, like a previous poster said, the timing is eery

PALM BEACH, Fla. - Pilot Steve Irwin has quite a fish tale, and he wasn't even fishing.



Anyone else catch this?

Who wants to go for a nice swim?

All joking aside, I would love to be in a glass bottom boat or a shark cage in the middle of that. I think it would be cool to be in the middle of all those sharks swimming by. But only if I was in a glass bottom boat or shark cage.
