Meet The World’s First Vegetarian Shark


Most of us would probably only be caught dead in the same water as a shark. When it comes to humans, we’re at the top of their food chain! However, this shark might just change our view on these big fish—and we mean big.

As Tree Hugger describes it, a six-foot-long shark named Florence took meat off the menu, and now only bites for lettuce. She grabbed headlines originally by becoming the first of her kind to undergo a groundbreaking ‘out of water’ surgery to remove a rusty fish hook lodged in her gut.

According to Graham Burrows of the Sea Life Center, the shark has gone “completely veggie”. However, wildlife specialists soon realized that they had to get her to eat meat one way or another in order to provide her with the proper nutrition that a shark needs—mainly by hiding pieces of fish inside celery sticks, hollowed out cucumbers and between the leaves of lettuces.

Here’s our question for you guys: Would you trust a vegetarian shark? Let’s us know!
