Gulf Sharks Learning To Walk On Land

"A new study into the diets of Gulf tiger sharks found the scavengers are not only feeding on marine animals but also land-based birds, including woodpeckers, swallows, tanagers, meadowlarks and others. 'We were not expecting to see this. It certainly prompts a series of questions, the most obvious being "How does a land bird end up in the water as food for sharks?"' said lead researcher Marcus Drymon of the Dauphin Island Sea Lab in Alabama."
And then the scary music started.

By the time the sharks get their act together enough to walk on the street, they'll find a world already overrun by malevolent dolphins.

I misread tanagers as teenagers and liked it.

"Learning to walk"? Learning to fly, man! LEARNING TO FLY!

If Gulf Sharks start walking on land, the NW Florida Daily News is going to have a lot of stories about people trying to have sex with them.

Woodpeckers?

THESE FUCKERS ARE NOT ONLY ON LAND, THEY ARE CLIMBING TREES!

I'm off to dig up Roy Scheider. Who's with me?

In all seriousness we used to see this when I was aboard ship – you'd be fifty miles off the coast and see a robin flying around the superstructure. My next thought was always "how the hell did that bird get out here and how's it going to get back to shore?"
