A San Diego photographer took a photo of what appears to be a shark inside a wave with surfers all around it. At all times the surfers were unaware of the shark’s presence, and no one was attacked.
Photographer Gary Elliot took the snapshot while taking pictures of the high surf off Encinitas, California, which is near San Diego. Elliot did not even realize what a rare photo he had until he examined the shots on his home computer.
Marine biologist Marcelo Szpilman writing about the photo says, “I cannot say exactly what it is, but it sure is not a white shark, because the shape of the caudal fin is different.”
Of course, it might easily be some type of shark other than a great white.
