Jaws Revisited: Is there a Great White Shark in Cornwall?
Cornwall depends on vacationers for 25% of its income, and its no surprise that experts in the local press have surmised that the sighting was really a Basking Shark, which are often seen in the area. The local BBC Cornwall news, available in streaming mode, is also downplaying the story.
I was feeling grateful to live near a lake, not the ocean, until my research revealed that you are more likely to be killed by a coconut falling on you than be attacked by a Great White. Just in case sharks become the latest craze, I’ve gone over to Daily Lit and signed up for free daily delivery of Moby Dick to my inbox. I’ve also viewed this footage of Basking Sharks in the Falmouth area, just in case I come upon a serious shark discussion. Wouldn't you know that there even is a Great White Shark blog? There are several areas where Great Whites are routinely spotted, and for a real adventure tale you might like to see this story by the survivor of a Great White attack.
