Researchers examined and dissected the body of a Great White Shark after it washed up on a beach Saturday in Westport, Massachusetts, near the Rhode Island state line.
The 13-foot male shark was estimated to weigh about 1,500 pounds. Its cause of death was unknown.
The shark is too big to move, officials said Monday, so the carcass will be left on the beach to decompose.
The gruesome scene didn’t stop beachgoers from crowding around the shark or taking pictures with its fin.
