Florida is full of wildlife, and any resident will tell you it’s not uncommon to see a potentially dangerous animal like an alligator or bear. But in the wake of Hurricane Ian photos and videos have been surfacing of unusual findings inside and around people’s homes. In one, a marine animal that looks like a shark appears to swim through the flooding near homes in Fort Myers. The video first started making its rounds on Twitter, though many questioned if it was real.
… But the Associated Press confirmed that the clip was filmed last Wednesday by a man named Dominic Cameratta who filmed from his backyard in Fort Myers during the storm surge.
He told the AP: “I didn’t know what it was — it just looked like a fish or something. I zoomed in, and all my friends are like, ‘It’s like a shark, man.'” AP also confirmed that the metadata of the video clip showed that it was in fact filmed on Wednesday morning.
