Here’s some video that’ll make you think twice before swimming to far off in the Gulf. Sharks swarming off this Clearwater Florida beach.

Helicopter footage from the Pasco County Sheriff shows the sharks off Anclote Key, which is a nature preserve in the Tampa / Clearwater area. Each year tarpon show up in huge numbers between Boca Grande and Tampa Bay as they’ve migrated here all the way from Africa and through the Caribbean. The sharks follow behind them. Because to sharks, tarpon are delicious. I’ve never had tarpon. Is it good? I do love grouper. Do sharks eat grouper, too? I think the sharks in Florida eat everything.

The Pasco County Sheriff helicopter was flying over Anclote Key State Park and took this video. Make sure you share this with your northern friends. We all know the gulf is full of sharks. They don’t.
