Shark kayakDid you see the spectacular photos from 2003 where a surfer is accompanied by a big dolphin looking like a shark? Well, it just looks like a shark but apparently is a dolphin (you can tell by the top fin). Well, here's a photo of a guy in a kayak being followed by a great white shark.

Accordning to Snopes.com the photo is real and fortunately it's a safe setting. The guy in the kayak is a great white shark researcher. Even if it is safe, they didn't know that until after the experiment :)

I know the photographer, and it was a DOLPHIN. Real photo, and not that unusual in California to see them surfing.

100% shark... look at the tail, dolphins have horizontal tails, sharks have vertical. this aint no friendly flipper ;)

You don't KNOW the photographer, clearly. A DOLPHIN???? Dude. Remind me never to go fishing with you!

From snout to tail, there's NOTHING about this one that looks anything like a dolphin! LOL!

If you're going to make stuff up, at least try not to make up stupid things. Dork.

The surfing shot shows a dolphin. The kayak shot is definitely a shark. It's pretty obvious if you know anything about sharks and dolphins.

Its a shark because its tail goes back and forth a dolphin's goes up and down so its a shark!

Agostos

It's a shark because dolphins have a curved body shape and sharks have a straight body shape.
