Imagine that, a shark that lives in the ocean dies and washes up on shore. Wow, there's some breaking news. What about the dead rock fish or the dead horseshoe crab. Why don't they get their due. God, there has to be a news editor somewhere that can due their job.

Looks like a Sand Tiger, or possibly a Lemon. I thought seeing an 8 foot Washed-up Hammerhead was stunning, until I saw a live 10 Foot Hammerhead in the Water messing with the fishing lines.

This is nothing. A beetle died this morning on a head of cabbage. Funeral arangements are incomplete at this time. The beetle's next of kin will be notified and after that the deceased name will be released to the public. Meanwhile Britney has been sighted, sans underwear, heading toward the Obama camp. In other important news, the sun after coming up this morning is headed down in the west.

O.C. Shark story---Bad reporting. Looks like a Sand Tiger caught in many numbers in 3-4 ft of water.

I was down there last week when it happened - just a street away on 129th. wondered if it would somehow make the news. Though honestly, I'm in the 'this stuff happens constantly and isn't worth reporting' camp. Still pretty sad to see it dragged away down the beach from a 4 wheeler.

I would sriously be uset if it was still alive. Arent there peope there that have hearts and could possibly save that bautiful helpless shark? That lifeguard should have called a local vet or organization to come and assist. How about dragging it back to the water and or taking it out to sea and helping i there. a shark can live with a hook in its mouth ...deff not a reason to let it DIE!!! How upsetting
