A powerful cyclone that pounded Australia earlier this week apparently had an inadvertent storm chaser as it carried a five-foot-long bull shark miles inland.
The mud-covered creature was discovered sitting in the remnants of a puddle in the Australian town of Ayr by a journalist photographing the aftermath of Cyclone Debbie.
While the remarkably well-preserved shark may conjure comparisons to the cult film Sharnado, it is believed that the animal was not lifted in the air by the storm, but rather caught in the flood waters and forced far inland.
Authorities in Australia posted images of the creature to their Facebook account to both marvel at the incredible sight and emphasize the dangers that may be lurking in flood water.
If only the unfortunate shark had gotten such a warning, perhaps it would not have ventured so close to the storm.
