Rolling out the Uglies, Part II (Aussie-style)

You're looking at a close cousin of the great white shark. Everyone say hello to the Mako shark, who is new to this site. Be nice to him, because he is one of the fastest creatures in the sea, clocking in at 30 mph (48 kph). That's pretty speedy. If you decide to comment on his less-than-attractive appearance where he can hear you, give yourself a good headstart.

The Yahoo! story that came along with this photo talks about a drunken Australian who attacked one of these with his bare hands. Australia: the land of Puggles and Inebriated Shark-fighters.

Yeah but it was a kiwi that killed one with a cricket bat!
