"Another wild day on the Gold Coast! Bull Shark in the backyard at Burleigh Waters," the post's caption said. One commentator made a movie reference joke by saying, "How did it get there? Clearly Sharknado."
Recently after a flood caused by the storm in south-east Queensland, a bull shark was found swimming in floodwaters next to a man's back fence. A picture of the shark's fins visible from above the floodwater was posted by the Gold Coast man.
As it can be seen in the picture, the canals had overflown, causing floodwaters to breach the back fence and enter the man's garden while the shark swam just meters away.
The post soon went viral as it got shared more than 2,000 times and received more than 1,000 times.
"Another wild day on the Gold Coast! Bull Shark in the backyard at Burleigh Waters," the post's caption said.
One commentator made a movie reference joke by saying, "How did it get there? Clearly Sharknado."
"North QLD get crocs, the Gold Coast gets bull sharks. This little guy at Burleigh Heads is enjoying his new pond," said another comment.
Another man shared his experience with everyone. "I was fishing near there with my grandson last year and something big took his bait and ran his line out. Didn't think much of it at the time. Don't think I'd go swimming near there any time soon," he said.
Some, on the other hand, thought it was a photoshopped picture.
"Looks like a Palm frond floating on its side. Look at the 'tail' end," one person commented.
"Photoshopped, no water trail behind it," another wrote.
"I reckon it's a photoshop. One crops up every time we have a flood. It's unusual to see a bull shark up the top," a woman added.
One woman, however, defended the post's authenticity by writing, "The rivers here are full of sharks and the rivers are also connected to the ocean. Makes sense we'd see them active when the waters are their ideal muddy/murky and there are new areas for them to explore."
