Huge Shark Washed Ashore in Long Island

Look at the size of this shark that washed ashore in Long Island on July 14, 2009. The little girl in the photo looks freaked out as I would be. There is an article about it in National Geographic. Next time your in the water at Jones Beach you can remember this blog post and stay close to the shore. Actually as scary as it looks according to the article “Basking sharks are the world's second largest fish, after whale sharks, and can grow up to 32 feet (10 meters) long. Despite their giant mouths, the sharks are not considered dangerous and feed mainly on plankton.
