A big ol' half-eaten shark washed up ashore at New Smyrna Beach last Saturday, a sobering reminder that not only is there always a bigger fish, but that the ocean is metal as hell.

According to WKMG, the shark was either a blacktip or a spinner – apparently it was little too chewed-on to tell.

It's not unusual to see a lot of shark activity this time of year. Approximately 10,000-12,000 blacktip sharks migrate to Florida waters between now and mid-to-late March.
