The shark was thought to be around 5 feet long before being bitten leaving many to wonder what bit off its tail.

A Volusia County Beach Safety Ocean Rescue who took a photo of the shark wrote on Instagram “I guess there is something even bigger out there.”

He is correct about larger sharks off the Florida coast. Great white shark Katherine recently pinged just off the coast. The 14-foot female was satellite tagged by the shark taggers OCEARCH.

In addition, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission recently tweeted a photo of a large white shark cruising around 20 miles off Ormond Beach.
