Horror footage shows sharks up to 10 feet long circling Florida shoreline after one sinks its teeth into swimmer's foot | The Sun

HORROR footage shows the moment sharks up to 10 feet long circle the Florida shoreline following a spate of attacks in the state.

The drone clip was taken by Paul Dabill off the coast of Jupiter Island.

It is believed the footage shows lemon sharks, which can grow up to 10 feet long and weight 500lb.

They have been known to bite humans, with one swimmer mauled in 2020 while on vacation in Florida, TCPalm reports.

Justin Stuller said at the time: "I felt the skin more than the shark. It rolled me over and I saw it swimming away."

Photographer Dabill said the “calm and clear” water helped him capture the sharks prowling yards from the beach in the recent footage.

Despite that, the Florida Museum of Natural History said "lemon sharks represent little threat to humans."

"There have been no fatal attacks attributed to this species," they add.

At least 25 people have been bitten by a shark in the US this year, according to TrackinSharks.com.

One New York teenager told last week how he was mauled by a shark that clamped him like a bear trap.

Max Haynes, 16, had been surfing with friends just off Long Island when the dangerous beast chomped on his right foot.

Brave Max luckily managed to kick free from the sea creature when it struck 45 feet from the shoreline at Kismet Beach on Fire Island.
