Shark-Infested Golf Course

Hey caddy, my ball went into the water. Be a good sport and go in and get it, would you?

Well, maybe not at the Carbrook Golf Club in Brisbane, Australia, where half a dozen bullsharks live in the lake. They took up residence a few years ago when a nearby river flooded, and have been breeding since then. Some of the sharks are up to ten feet long. They've become quite an attraction, so groundskeepers feed them to encourage them to come near the shore. Watch a video of the sharks at the link. -via Dave Barry

The water in the lake where the sharks are is NOT freshwater, it is about half way between water from the pacific ocean (3.5% salt) and distilled water (actual reading is 17 parts salt per 1000 water), ie 1.7% salt.

Really wish people would stop calling sharks maneaters. Have these actually killed anyone? No? Then how about just calling them SHARKS.
Anyway, pretty cool. Hope they don't disturb the other fish that were there too much.

"Sharks are found in all seas. They generally do not live in freshwater, with a few exceptions such as the bull shark and the river shark which can swim both in seawater and freshwater." [Thx Wikipedia :D)
