    Why can't you just post the story ya lazy barstool!

    Shocked witnesses have described a sea "full of blood" after a fatal shark attack just metres from shore in South Africa.

    Zimbabwean Lloyd Skinner, 37, was standing in water estimated to be less than 20m from the beach at Fish Hoek, Cape Town, when the great white attacked on Tuesday.

    "We saw the shark come back twice," the Cape Times reported British tourist Phyllis McCartain as saying.

    "It had the man's body in its mouth, and his arm was in the air.

    "Then the sea was full of blood."

    Horrified witnesses on the beach desperately screamed to swimmers to get out of the water.

    "We looked at the walkway and saw people waving towels at us, then we looked further out to sea and saw what looked like blood, and a man's leg come up," nearby swimmer Kyle Johnston was reported as saying.

    Beaches at the popular holiday location, currently in the height of its summer season, were yesterday shut down.

    No remains of the victim have been found despite a widespread water search.

    Last year, South Africa recorded six shark attacks, four of which were fatal.

    Heard about this. Apparently it was (literally) just down the road from where a mate of mine lives.

    Not the first attack there either, something to do with the sharks migrating past that particular area every year. Sharks give me the shits.

    With regard to the OP Great White Sharks normally only bite once and let go, determine that the victim is its natural prey and then return to devour the remaining body parts.

    Could of been a tiger shark or a pack of other preditor sharks.

    given the location, probably a great white loytoy.
    plenty of them around that area.

    strangely, i have not seen a single report of this in the south african media.

    perhaps they are doing tha thai thing and covering it all up so as not to scare off the tourists!

    That's true, but maybe this was a great white that hadn't read the manual. Of course, there are a lot of bull sharks in those parts.

    Back to schooling in the metric system methinks,20cm of water?
    Did the shark have legs?
    20cm is about eight inches on the old money.
    I prefer the report of waist deep water and 20 metres from the beach.

    Great Whites have been the popular villain since the Jaws movie, but Bull Sharks kill more people world wide every year. Unfortunately, Bull Sharks only grow to maximum 3 meters, and are generally much smaller. So not very good for movie stars. But what they lack in size they make up for in ferocity. They are like Piranhas and have teeth to match. They bight off lumps of flesh and their victim dies of blood loss. And they are an inshore species penetrating right up into the fresh water. Their aggressive feeding behaviour and close proximity to human habitation is what results in Bull Sharks being the species most commonly responsible for attacks on humans.
