A 1.7 ton Great White Shark (roughly the same weight as an Aston Martin Vanquish) has been sighted off the beaches of Newcastle Bay, keeping beaches closed for six days.
You know that sh*t’s getting real when Australians–the people who stare death in the face every day–are scared of wildlife. We can’t necessarily blame them, though, as the shark is reportedly sixteen feet in length and could “bite a person in half,” according to a beach inspector.
Officials have announced that the beaches will remain closed until a full 24 hours passes without sighting the monster.
