Is This a Photo of a Dead Shark Floating off Westhampton Beach?

While aboard the Hendrick’s Gin “Flying Cucumber” this morning for a leisurely blimp ride by Dune Road, we noticed something strange in the water: It appeared to be a dead shark or another marine animal floating.

What look like fins could belong to another sea creature, such as a whale or a leatherback turtle. The floating object could be something else entirely—but it really looked like a shark!

The curious site was spotted in the ocean just off the shore of Westhampton Beach. It was approximately 8:20 a.m.

EDITOR’S NOTE: This is a sunfish.
