Jaws on its way to Denmark?

This summer's testicle-eating fish is the great white shark

News about great white sharks tends to make a big splash and then disappear as quickly as a surfer on Bondi Beach.

Who remembers Lydia, who in March became the first of her kind to cross the Mid-Atlantic Ridge? The scientists monitoring her confidently predicted she was on her way to southwestern Britain. And with lots of baby sharks onboard as well.

Well, since then, there has only been one report: that she took a right turn and wasn't coming anymore.

Sharks in Denmark, maybe
Still, it was only a matter of time before we got a story about one arriving in Danish waters. 

And Lars Olsen, the curator of the Blue Planet aquarium, who many will remember for his contributions to the testicle-eating fish story last summer, has only been too happy to oblige.

According to Olsen, new research indicates the GWS could easily already be living in Danish waters.

Fish found in the Mediterranean, in areas where the GWS has been found, have already been found in Danish waters, he told Metroxpress.

“It is believed that the great white has been seen in UK, so perhaps it’s already here, but just hasn’t been observed,” he said.
