Bizarre! Woman Rushed to Hospital with Shark Stucked to Arm
The small nurse shark, which was about two feet (61 centimeters) long, was killed by a beachgoer soon after the attack. The victim, a 23-year-old woman was bitten while bathing at a beach in the coastal city of Boca Raton, according to city-fire rescuers.
According to the Shark Research Institute, nurse sharks are nocturnal creatures, and are often found lying motionless on the ocean floor in rocky coastal areas during the day.
The sharks eat small fish and creatures like lobster, squid, and sea urchins — not human flesh.
