2013 #sevengill #shark

May. 01/13

Local scuba divers have spotted large sevengill sharks swimming off the coast of La Jolla this week.

The shark is one of the newest creatures to call the area home, and also happens to be one of the largest local predators. 

Divers are pushing for a scientific explanation to explain this recent phenomenon inside La Jolla Cove. 

In the past several years there has been a dramatic increase in the number of sevengill shark sightings. MORE
