Every other day it looks like there's a new shark in the area!
I'm telling you man, the sharks KNOW when it's shark week! Why else would there be so many sightings this Summer!
Yesterday afternoon swimmers at Narragansett Town Beach were asked to vacate the water after a shark sighting. A Thresher Shark to be exact. Which is actually pretty cool since that type of shark has been on the vulnerable to extinction list for quite some time and seems to really enjoy Rhode Islands coast the best.
I also think it's neat that It's named for its long, scythe-like tail, which is used to stun fish before preying on them. Anyway! Learn more about what happened below!
