Danny Lester gets more than he bargained for his trap on Saturday.

Danny Lester was a bit surprised when he pulled in his net at Little Albert's Beach on Saturday morning to find a sand tiger shark.

Fitting to their name, sand sharks lives close to the shoreline. While they might look nasty — with their protruding teeth and big, pointy heads — they actually don't bother humans much. According to the International Shark Attack File, there have are 29 unprovoked attacks with two fatalities.

It was still breathing and he let it swim off into the bay.  

Still, of course, the question is: Do you still want to swim there?
