The destructive hurricane currently making landfall in the United States has been displacing the local wildlife.
There is no denying the trail of destruction left by Hurricane Ian – a tropical cyclone that has already caused untold damage and loss of life in Florida and that is now making its way along the East Coast.
For one resident in southwest Florida, however, the storm had brought with it something unbelievable.
In video footage captured and uploaded onto Twitter, Fort Myers resident Dominic Cameratta managed to capture what appeared to be an actual live shark swimming in his neighbor’s back yard.
The local real estate developer confirmed that the clip, which shows the unexpected visitor swimming around in the floodwater, had been recorded from his patio on Wednesday.
“I didn’t know what it was – it just looked like a fish or something,” he told The Associated Press.
“I zoomed in, and all my friends are like, ‘It’s like a shark, man!'”
The video quickly racked up several million views on social media, with other users likening it to something out of the Sharknado movie series.
Some experts believe that the creature was a young bull shark swept up by the rising water levels.
