Great white shark on path for Britain

44 posts in this topic

A great white shark, set to become the first recorded example of her species to cross from one side of the Atlantic to the other, is heading for British shores.

Lydia, a 15-foot (4.5m) giant, is currently 1000 miles from the Cornish coast and keeping to her current path, with a maximum swimming speed of about 35mph, she could arrive within a few days.

Lol, it sounds like it is a conscious attack on the British Isle - "She has her mind set on the British Isles and nothing is gonna stop her reaching her goal. At a speed of 35mph she relentlessly strive on a course for impact within a few days. Be afraid Britons, be very afraid." :D

Oh my, that would freak me out if I lived there.

I live in Florida however and we get Shark attacks. It makes me not want to swim in the ocean sometimes after I see articles like this.

We have Great Whites around where I live and shark attacks are fairly rare, although they do happen. Plus, most of the attacks in places like Australia are people who swim outside of the designated areas on beaches that are protected by shark nets.

I'm actually more worried about the jellyfish, seeing as they seem to be more abundant than ever here.

You like dogs yes? Just think of sharks as sea dogs. Big cute huggable puppies of the sea. :wub:

I find the name Lydia more interesting than anything else.

Sharks aren't tasty they use urea as a means of osmoregulation, so after a shark dies, the urea in their body fluids converts into the foul-smelling and toxic ammonia. That being said their fins must make a tasty soup, seeing how an estimated 270,000 sharks are killed around the world everyday for their fins.

The biggest danger in the sea around the UK is the cold, it's far more likely to kill you than anything living. The currents can be strong to, plenty of people still get swept out to sea and are never seen again :P

Here is her, less than direct, course across the Atlantic. By looking at that chart she seems a bit tipsy, to say the least. ;)

Most were shown to be mis-identified as Great Whites, with 10 reports being labelled as "Credible". I dont think there is any doubt that Great White´s inhabit the Med, with the largest ever caught worldwide, being taken off of morocco.

it looks like its around the Dutch Cap area where there are good fishing grounds, (mentioned in film The Perfect Storm), but if it does decide to come here the best we can do is send the tag back to the owners,end of story.We don't want anyone gobbled up by this creature.
