Lol, I didn't even know what a paver was, and had to look that up. But now my way of ''measuring'' has totally changed and yep he's def going to have even more of a complex haha ;)

note: the pavers are actually 3 and 5/8" wide but we must account for the 1/8" gap in between! probably looks like about a sixteenth to you though ; )

the standard paver is 3.75 inches wide......this shark is 24 standard paver widths long.....24 x 3.75" = 90".......90"/12(inches per foot) = 7.5 feet! ......with an eye like that i wouldnt be surprised if your beau has a serious complex! ; )

What a sad sight. It is a pity some people just value these magnificent animals for hauling out the water and destroyed for their own peculiar pleasure. Sharks are having a hard time of it right now - surely do they not deserve to be protected and not exploited like this? http://www.sharkwater.com/

and id have to agree completely with you, except for the fact that i did not catch/kill this shark. this shark was caught by a professional sharker, whoes lively hood depends on them, therefore it is not going to waste in the least bit.

I've also heard that sharks are having a bad time at the moment. But for anyone in the Palm Beach area, have a look at this and take care out there http://www.wptv.com/dpp/news/local_news/youreport/thousands-of-sharks-spotted-off-palm-beach
