    Default Merseyside Jaws

    Is this a monster shark lurking in Liverpool's Albert dock?

    For a while I was struck by the oddity of having such a large white circle just off shore...

    Monster shark? Shark wasn't enough it has to be a monster shark...

    It is odd that it is the only feature in the water. Odd too that if it was a dead basking shark why has the body not turned up?

    But don't those jet ski's need a shallow piece of water to start you off? and have you tried startingup a jet ski on deepish water?thier balance needs a tightrope walker one.

    Its a bit like riding a bike.... you need one foot on the ground and tother on the pedal to kickthe bike into balance mode.

    The skier could have come for a look-see at the dock and gunned-it for a short while just as the photograph was taken?

    Would that not depend on the clarity of the shot? The rest of the water is featureless.

    It's strange that you have the same shot from a different angle. Is there no way to scroll forward or back in time?
    Aye! There's the rub.

    It isn't upside down George. What you think is its open mouth is a fin behind the back of its head.

    Marine biology expert Tom Cornwell said the 'large object' could be a basking shark - which can grow to 35ft.
    This did suprise me...here we have an intelligent man(alledgedly) quoting it could be a basking shark,instead of researching it first before making stupid comments and ruining his reputation as a Marine biologist.

    Ged,the belly of a shark is whte,the upper part is a dark colour...now then if that was a shark its upper part of its body would have blended in with the water and you would not have seen it as it is in the pic,however if its upside down then that is what you will have seen in the pic.

    Anyway as I said its a small cabin boat just started up in the dock.

    I don't see how that's a boat???

    And if it's just started up, then where from as there are boats (which look nothing like this from the air) moored all around the dockside from where that is coming.

    It must have been a while ago as Google Earth is not up to the minute images.

    We probably shouldn't blame Tom Cornwell, he's probably just been phoned up by some journo saying: 'A large object has shown up in the water Liverpool on google earth, its about 20 feet long and looks like a shark'. He may not have even seen the photo.
