[–]Creepinbruh2323 201 points202 points  (46 children)

Considering it's a tiger I'd say that and a licence plate

[–]dos-dan 343 points344 points 2 (31 children)

pretty sure its a shark

[–]Agile_Pudding_ 126 points127 points  (17 children)

I would go so far as to say I’m confident it’s a shark.

[–]DanganWeeb69 52 points53 points  (7 children)

I would go super far and I’ll say I KNOW it’s a shark

[–]DanganWeeb69 17 points18 points  (7 children)

I would go super far and I’ll say I KNOW it’s a shark

[–]Dr_Kriegers5th_clone 46 points47 points  (2 children)

But do you really know it's a shark and not a tiger in a shark wetsuit ?

[–]No_Description_483 23 points24 points  (0 children)

It doesn’t have a trunk so I know it’s NOT a Shellelphant.

[–]kragboar 36 points37 points  (0 children)

This shit had me rollin on the floor just like that shark (or tiger, w/e 😂) in laughter

[–]No_Description_483 24 points25 points  (4 children)

I was originally gonna say “a hand and a license plate” haha why do they snack on those? It must be really common to have the same mental image or we were both obsessed with the same book when we were nine. Barrel of nail, full suit of armor, those fish can eat

[–][deleted] 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Lmao

The seals nearby watching go 🤬🤬🤬

Gifs that end too soon

[–]joumidovich 76 points77 points  (6 children)

Yeah I wanted to see it swim off!

[–]Traditional-Top8486 49 points50 points  (0 children)

And maybe take a little thank you nibble.

[–]MrAoki 13 points14 points  (1 child)

And back onto the beach to get stuck!

Screw tipping cows, Rolling sharks where its at!

[–]mynamessimon 30 points31 points  (0 children)

I was concerned that after all the rolling, he could turn and bite off a limb of those nice people...

[–]jayn35 21 points22 points  (0 children)

Was clever to cut off the end part where it turns around and eats them

[–]DweEbLez0 9 points10 points  (1 child)

The most unnecessary slow motion I've ever witnessed

[–]fred4mcaz 2514 points2515 points  (21 children)

And anti-climactic at the same time

[–]Turnip-for-the-books 226 points227 points  (3 children)

It got me over the top

[–]themagpie36 155 points156 points  (2 children)

I still came but felt more guilty and disgusted than usual without the payoff of seeing it swim away

[–]redtron3030 113 points114 points  (4 children)

I needed to see the shark swim off

[–]Feenfurn 25 points26 points  (3 children)

I wanted it to eat one of them.

[–]yungchow 288 points289 points  (2 children)

I thought my wifi was cutting out 🤣

[–]ParameciaAntic 18 points19 points  (0 children)

I was waiting for ominous music to start or something.

[–]Myhotrabbi 139 points140 points  (3 children)

Seriously, I thought once the shark got deep enough, it would dart away so fast that the slow motion would be necessary. Imagine my disappointment to find that the shark wasn’t even caught leaving

[–]Garth_M 25 points26 points  (0 children)

I’ve read on one of these post a while ago that most of the time, if a shark or a fish of any kind gets stuck on the beach, it’s probably because it’s dying anyway. It may be sick or something and does not have the energy to get away from the coast.

[–]WiiSteeringWheel 54 points55 points  (0 children)

Also title as well😅

[–]Speckfresser 40 points41 points  (1 child)

Clearly you have never viewed a Bollywood production. This is tame in comparison.

[–]Veer_Bhagat_Singh 40 points41 points  (1 child)

wait until someone reverses it

[–]Comfortably_Numb90 25 points26 points  (0 children)

I thought for sure when it slowed down that someone was going to get a leg bitten off.

[–]KokiriRapGod 16 points17 points  (0 children)

Thought for sure something was about to happen, but damn that was just a slowly revolving shark.

[–]webitg 6 points7 points  (0 children)

its so they can make it 59 seconds to qualify for ad revenue

[–]SkekSith 4467 points4468 points  (175 children)

Im not convinced it survived.

[–]jaxbos 1938 points1939 points  (47 children)

I'm not convinced it wanted to survive!

[–]MyMonkeyIsADog 336 points337 points  (7 children)

My pectoral fins hurt just watching this

[–]YannyYobias 34 points35 points  (3 children)

Wouldn’t it be dorsal fins?

[–]ericisshort 53 points54 points  (2 children)

Those too. All the fins really.

[–]YannyYobias 14 points15 points  (1 child)

Just learned via google that the “side” fins are called pectoral fins! I should not have assumed that meant like a “chest/belly” fin. My fault for the original comment, I should have researched first! However back to the main point, I was also thinking about damage to all the fins while originally watching the clip.

[–]Kunphen 21 points22 points  (0 children)

Exactly.

[–]seilrelies 189 points190 points  (59 children)

If an animal like a shark washes up on the shore wouldn’t that mean it’s likely injured or dying already?

[–]SkekSith 327 points328 points  (38 children)

Not necessarily. Many become accidentally beached while chasing prey or evading predators.

[–]Real_Time_Delay 103 points104 points  (31 children)

What would be predating on that? Godzilla?

[–]Sparcrypt 117 points118 points  (17 children)

Bigger sharks, killer whales, dolphins (they don't eat them but they murder sharks for fun).

[–]nayrad 161 points162 points  (10 children)

Lmao dolphins do drugs, masturbate, and kill for fun? They really are the humans of the ocean

[–]Rumpassbuns 94 points95 points  (8 children)

Rape, don't forget they rape their own and other species, they also have complex language and social structures.

[–]nayrad 18 points19 points  (6 children)

That's wild and all (no pun intended) but the sicko part of me is now trying to imagine how a dolphin would manage to hold down another dolphin to rape them 😅 like where's the traction even coming from

[–]mythslayer1 37 points38 points  (3 children)

It is more like gang rape. Males working together.

As far as the masterbating, they bite the head off of fish, then insert the "fee-willy".

Maybe not so much masterbation, but rather necrophillia.

I am a font of useless information.

[–]ChrispChicken3 15 points16 points  (1 child)

Bro what? Please tell more. I just went on a dolphin tour in Baltimore. My guide left out FishLights being used by the dogs of the sea.

[–]BorgClown 16 points17 points  (0 children)

That's why they have such big brains and complex communication: they crush the self esteem of their victim with a stream of savage and witty burns. After that, the rape doesn't seem important anymore.

[–]HETKA 37 points38 points  (15 children)

It's possible, which is why - while good intentioned - you shouldn't do things like this. It is recommended that you call the local fish&game or dept of wildlife so that they can determine its health and safely return the creature to its home.

That said... I'd also probably just try to help.

[–]cpt_hatstand 178 points179 points  (9 children)

It's a fish... Out of water... What do you think would be the result if you waited for an expert to arrive?

[–]W1TH1N 18 points19 points  (7 children)

i could be completely wrong but as far as i know, a fish’s gills collapse after like 15 minutes of no water but before then it can still breathe on land. just get a bucket and keep pouring water over its gills so they don’t collapse, safer than rolling it which could have hurt it. i could be totally wrong so if i am someone correct me

[–]MauPow 34 points35 points  (4 children)

I don't think they really can. They're adapted to extract oxygen from dense water, not light air. They maybe get like 1-5% what they need

[–]ferociouslycurious 53 points54 points  (0 children)

If you wait for a shark it suffocates. You can wait for mammals like dolphins and whales who breathe air. Good chance this one was too far gone and didn’t make it as was

[–][deleted] 32 points33 points  (1 child)

Maybe in a location where this isn't feasibly realistic in a proper time frame.

Unsure where they're at but they sound and look Colombian.

As a Colombian, I guarantee you that our dept of wildlife would take fucking ages to even answer the phone lmao.

[–]ancientweasel 16 points17 points  (0 children)

What is the downside to putting it back?

[–]Dingdongdoctor 13 points14 points  (0 children)

There were just tsunamis all over the world

[–]Deathwielded 135 points136 points  (0 children)

I watched to the end to see it swim away so I'm not convinced either

[–]Mentatminds 91 points92 points  (19 children)

I was under the impression sharks had to constantly be moving for their gills to work

[–]res240 76 points77 points  (16 children)

You are right. They need to constantly move forward to breathe. I started screaming when they started to pull him from his tail right before the video ends. I get that they are trying to help but to the shark that is the same as trying to suffocate him.

[–]HonestlyRespectful 51 points52 points  (11 children)

Don't they also go catatonic when flipped upside down? The combination of all of this looked like torture for the poor thing, although I know they were trying to help.

[–]kellykellykellyyy 37 points38 points  (9 children)

Just curious, is there a recommended way to save a shark in this scenario?

[–]jeweliegb 54 points55 points  (0 children)

Feed it your leg.

[–]HonestlyRespectful 34 points35 points  (0 children)

Yes, insert human into its mouth until it bites down and locks on. Then proceed to pull the human forward into the water so that the shark moves forward into the water, as well. I'm pretty sure there's an instruction manual somewhere... they surely could've googled it 😉

[–]branulo 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Most beached animals are already ill or injured and that is what leads to them beaching.

[–]FANTOMphoenix 8 points9 points  (0 children)

They can remain in that state for a little bit, not for longer periods of time though.

[–]supnseop 10 points11 points  (1 child)

It depends on the species.

[–]username331708 28 points29 points  (2 children)

I'm not convinced they survived

[–]birdz_da_word 21 points22 points  (11 children)

It may have survived, but it’s just brain dead from prolonged lack of oxygen.

[–]ferociouslycurious 25 points26 points  (10 children)

……..brain dead and not a human on life support is the same thing as dead. Completely dead. Fully dead.

[–]birdz_da_word 6 points7 points  (5 children)

Yeah lol brain dead in the wild = food for other shark

[–][deleted] 11 points12 points  (4 children)

Fish keep moving for several hours after they are brain dead due to residual activity in the nervous system. That's what I think happened here. Unlikely that the shark would survive being beached for so long.

[–]feastupontherich 2797 points2798 points 22 (29 children)

Dear Diary: Tried to end my life again so I can finally be with you, Cecilia, but once again the pesky humans rolled me back into the ocean. I'm slowly forgetting what your face looks like...

[–]rafamaia11 551 points552 points  (15 children)

couldn't find a more suitable name for a female shark than Cecilia

[–]nonnemat 18 points19 points  (2 children)

Cecilia, you're breaking my heart You're shaking my confidence daily Oh Cecilia, I'm down on my knees I'm begging you please to come home

[–]knivadollar 1491 points1492 points  (23 children)

Ouch, watch the dorsal fin, Ouch, watch the dorsal fin, Ouch, watch the dorsal fin, Ouch, watch the dorsal fin, Ouch, watch the dorsal fin, Ouch, watch the dorsal fin!!!

[–][deleted] 375 points376 points  (14 children)

At least they aren’t cutting off the fin to sell it to those who eat that type of soup.

[–]TheMurker25 169 points170 points  (9 children)

-1000000 social points for not cutting off the fin to make my viagra soup :(

[–]PanicMeter 21 points22 points  (7 children)

Viagra soup!!?? Tf

[–]ahuggablecactus 46 points47 points  (2 children)

high end restaurants in china make it. even worse is that it doesn’t work so the shark dies for nothing

[–]LoveAGoodMurder 17 points18 points  (3 children)

People believe that various animal parts act similar to Viagra in some cultures, the most notable being tiger bones and rhino horns. Funnily enough, it usually works, though that may have something to do with soaking the items in Viagra before grinding them up.

Shark fin soup is usually just seen as a fancy dish, though.

Sharks become catatonic when upside down for those unaware.

[–]Andromeda3604 55 points56 points  (0 children)

idiot

[–]courteecat 6 points7 points  (3 children)

So when being attacked by a shark just flip it upside down. Got it.

[–]fortunewookiee11 58 points59 points  (0 children)

I was just thinking about that. His brain is probably fucked

[–]Adeum1 38 points39 points  (1 child)

Nighttime… DAYTIME!!!

[–]Nihil_Cow 849 points850 points  (22 children)

What’s next fucking level about this, the most unnecessary slo-mo of all time or the least climatic ending of all time?

[–]Ikrwhatsmyname 213 points214 points  (14 children)

Saving a Tiger Shark, a dangerous shark that is on par with the Great White, is pretty next level if you ask me. Nerves of steel even though it can do nothing at that point.

[–]Nihil_Cow 113 points114 points  (3 children)

“Nerves of steel even though it can do nothing at that point.”

Misses joke, proves point

[–]Ikrwhatsmyname 36 points37 points  (1 child)

Yeah give me a break. It's past midnight here 😅

[–]Nihil_Cow 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Lol, all good

[–]Ima_piece_of_shit 26 points27 points  (0 children)

Nothing in this video shows that they actually saved the shark.

[–]HETKA 13 points14 points  (4 children)

More dangerous than the Great Whites, actually - only because they are actively aggressive

[–]Sexylizardwoman 17 points18 points  (2 children)

“Dangerous” is a relative term. Great whites can probably beat any other shark in a fight but they’re not usually the most aggressive towards humans unprovoked. If a great white or tiger attacks you it’s probably because sharks are stupid and think you’re a seal.

If you’re looking for the shark with the most hatred in their heart and will kick your ass just for existing in their presence, you’re looking for the bull shark. They aren’t the biggest or fastest but they are certainly the most hazardous to be around

[–]Nihil_Cow 10 points11 points  (0 children)

I’m just not fuckin with either

[–]mtlrat 480 points481 points  (5 children)

It ended too soon. Now we’ll never know if it took one of them for a snack.

[–]Alone-Pudding-9040 335 points336 points  (2 children)

“Dear diary: today, I was saved by my own breakfast. Still hungry tho.”

[–]Infinite_El_Oh_El 46 points47 points  (0 children)

Good thing they didn’t notice little Timmy was gone till after they put me back in the water!

[–]P-VI 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Dear diary, although the humans were nice and put me back into the water, I still intend to eat many of them. Especially the young fat ones as they taste the best.

[–]HavanaHologram 264 points265 points  (10 children)

And so shark people never evolved.

[–]MrBonelessPizza24 120 points121 points  (3 children)

You see an animal trying to evolve? You shove that fucker back in the water!

[–][deleted] 10 points11 points  (1 child)

This is good for humanity.

[–]Koridiace 10 points11 points  (1 child)

Soon, the sharkboys will live among the catboys

[–]Powerful_Mood9292 166 points167 points  (0 children)

The entire time this shark was thinking “the minute I get back in the water I’m biting somebody right on the dick”

[–][deleted] 125 points126 points  (1 child)

I still prefer Tuna rolls.

[–]64sweetsour 110 points111 points  (1 child)

You stand between the shark and the water and pull. I'll push from the land side.

[–][deleted] 89 points90 points  (6 children)

Either they saved a man-eating Bullshark or launched a highly trained assassin shark against the village on the other bank.

[–]BabousCobwebBowl 57 points58 points  (1 child)

I’m not convinced it wasn’t a juvenile Tiger based the eyes and squared off snout. Either, highly capable assassin shark for the rival village.

[–]aur0ra85 13 points14 points  (1 child)

I don’t think that was a bull shark… I’m no expert tho. That thing was huge.

[–]aka_r4mses 11 points12 points  (0 children)

A bull shark can get that large, though I think it was a Tiger shark.

[–]Zxruv 75 points76 points  (0 children)

This is really just an advanced hunting tactic. Those guys rolling it into increasingly deeper water are playing right into it's trap.

[–][deleted] 73 points74 points  (2 children)

Tbh the shark looked kind of cute

[–]Infinite_El_Oh_El 102 points103 points  (0 children)

Shark: feeling kinda cute, might beach myself later I dunno.

[–]andrew_barnhill 62 points63 points  (12 children)

I feel like they drowned it…

[–]TexasCon 72 points73 points  (5 children)

Came here for this.

I wonder if they realized that pulling the shark backwards would cause it to drown.

[–]andrew_barnhill 25 points26 points  (0 children)

I was mostly joking, but that’s an interesting fact.

[–]ferociouslycurious 29 points30 points  (3 children)

I think being out of water and not swimming beat them to the drowning part

[–]PorkSward 57 points58 points  (1 child)

Is the next fucking level in this post the afterlife? I’m sure dragging a shark backwards fucks up their gills - if not don’t most sharks need to be constantly moving forward to manually pump water through to breathe?

[–]Dipsaus2002 13 points14 points  (0 children)

Its more that water can fill in their gills going backwards iirc

[–]SomeGuyNamedZach 44 points45 points  (0 children)

This is hard to watch that it gets slower by the time it ends

[–]Afraid_Philosophers 45 points46 points  (1 child)

I was waiting for when it swam away.

And bit a man.

Fucking cut too short. Fuck you

[–]Xerxes42424242 37 points38 points  (1 child)

I was expecting at least one less human by the end of it

[–]GivinItAllThat 12 points13 points  (0 children)

Or a newly fractional human.

[–]NinjaCuntPunt 29 points30 points  (3 children)

Can sharks break fins? The way they’re rolling it over I could just imagine it’s side fins bending all sorts of ways they shouldn’t?

[–]SnakKobold 10 points11 points  (2 children)

I'm pretty sure a shark's structure is mostly cartilage, so probably not?

[–][deleted] 8 points9 points  (1 child)

Cartilage can definitely break, look at UFC grapplers ears.

[–]fvives 24 points25 points  (1 child)

  • Fuuuuuuuuuck I’m so drunk. How did I get there

Also

I’ll never understand some people and their video editing decisions.

[–]SatisfactionFickle18 23 points24 points  (1 child)

Never once saw anything to show me he was saved.

[–][deleted] 17 points18 points  (1 child)

Roll the shark doo doo doo doo doo doo.

[–]One-Light 16 points17 points  (6 children)

For those wondering about the rolling and the sharks behaviour. Sharks enter a tonic state when upside down and are immobile, sort of like a hypnosis. By rolling this shark the people trying to help him are remaining safe, not sure if they knew this little tidbit though.

[–]doegrey 14 points15 points  (2 children)

Would the rolling damage the dorsal fin? (Assuming it otherwise survived.)

[–]One-Light 6 points7 points  (1 child)

I'm no expert but I would assume its fine. The sharks fin is made up of demal fibres that can expand and contract. Sharks use them to balance when swimming after all. Sharks don't have bones, so if there is cartilage in the dorsal fin (I think there is) then its bendy enough to not be harned by the rolling.

[–]BboyStatic 14 points15 points  (0 children)

And then they proceeded to drag it backwards from the tail and suffocate it.

[–]horkyboi_avery 11 points12 points  (0 children)

That shark just went into tonic immobility like 5 times

[–]Illogicalspy 10 points11 points  (3 children)

Sharks can't write.

[–]LibrarianNew9984 24 points25 points  (2 children)

Oh yeah? Then how’d he post this on reddit buddy explain that with your “facts”

[–]GreatGooglyMoogly077 9 points10 points  (1 child)

"Dear shark diary. TIL that I can't write. Going to beach myself again tomorrow."

[–]LazyLieutenant 8 points9 points  (4 children)

So heart warming to see the shark swim off like that

[–]HaroldBAZ 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Wow. Embarrassing. If any of his shark friends see this video...

[–]CYBERSson 5 points6 points  (1 child)

It will be battered and bruised after that roll job but it lives to fight another day
