Florida beaches closed due to invasion of hundreds of sharks!!??
February 9, 2007 7:58pm CST
I have read a couple of articles in recent days about 2 beaches in Florida being shut due to an invasion of what was described as hundreds of Sharks - not 5 sharks, not 10 but hundreds. Can this be for real? Who would ever want to go swimming in Florida at all - its sounds like you would be placing yourself on the menu! Is there anyone from Florida that can shed more light on what has been happening here? Thanks

It only my theory but I wonder if they are gathering because it is the breeding season? Or maybe these are females banding together in order to give birth to their young. I watched a great documentary on television a while ago showing a similar large shoal of sharks in the waters of Mexico.

I have seen and heard on this from the net but from doing the research on the net aswell as I'm abit of a shark nerd :) It's not uncommon for them to be around this time of the year.. They will move on and yeah they don't go after humans unless provoked and that = stepping on the them, kicking,punching, wearing a fish costume. They will move them self on as they are normally around for 2 weeks. Here is abit of information about the sharks that I found interesting - www.sharkinfo.ch/SI3_02e/cbrevipinna.html. Thanks.
