Huge Hammerhead Shark spotted at Boca Grande Beach in Florida

At Boca Grande Pass, a massive Hammerhead Shark was filmed in ankle-deep water inches off the beach.

During tarpon season, this popular Boca Grande beach is a great place to find shells and catch a glimpse of some sharks.

This huge hammerhead shark was literally just a few feet into the water at Boca Grande Beach, as seen in this video posted by Peggy Dantuono.

Some people can be seen gathered at the water’s edge as the shark attempts to swim just feet away.

The footage was actually captured by Wendy Donnelly on June 10 in Boca Grande, Florida.

According to the Florida Museum, only 16 unprovoked hammerhead shark attacks have been documented around the world. According to the website, none of them were lethal.

According to the Florida Museum, there were 33 shark attacks in the United States in 2020, with 16 of them occurring in Florida.
