All burning questions since a sand shark turned up on the N Train to hop a ride from Brooklyn. He, alas, was no longer alive… which drove plenty of people from the car because of the stench.
Being a regular subway rider… you know that smell had to be pretty bad to drive hardened straphangers away! It turns out the sand shark was found by a couple of kids on a Coney Island beach and then a plumber from Bensonhurst decided to make it the mascot of the N and left it there for all to enjoy.
It turns out it wasn’t a Sharknado that blew into New York City and deposited fins on the subway. Although the sequel to Sharknado – which will be set in New York City – has been announced. Wait for it…i t’s brilliant… Sharknado 2: The Second One!
But, it got us to thinking: How can we protect ourselves if a Sharknado was to hit the Big Apple and giant fishes with teeth were flying through the air and landing in our cars?
We went to our favorite shark expert, Dave Siegworth from the Maritime Aquarium in Norwalk, CT who told us the best way to pet a shark and our odds of actually getting bit!
