Dominic Camerata, a local real estate developer, confirmed that he filmed the clip from his patio on Wednesday morning when he saw something “flopping around” in his neighbor’s flooded yard.
‘I didn’t know what it was, but it seemed like a fish or something,’ he added. All my buddies said, “Man, it looks like a shark!” when I went closer to it.
He thought the fish was about 1.2 meters long (4 feet).
Experts couldn’t agree whether the video showed a shark or other big fish. In an email, George Burgess, who used to run the Florida Museum of Natural History shark program, said it “appears to be a juvenile shark.” In contrast, Dr. Neil Hammerschlag, who runs the shark conservation program at the University of Miami, said that “it’s pretty hard to tell.”
