A video of a large bird flying carrying what seemed to be a shark over a hotel beach in South Carolina has gone viral on social media platforms.
The video, shared on a Twitter page dedicated to shark news called Tracking Shark, has been viewed over 24.6 million times since it was first posted on June 30.
However, Tracking Shark confirmed that the bird, identified as a osprey, had not caught a shark, but it was carrying a Spanish Mackerel.
The fish is a migratory species of mackerels that swims to the Northern Gulf of Mexico in spring, returns to south Florida in the Eastern Gulf, and to Mexico in the Western Gulf in the fall.
It can weigh up to 3.2 kilograms at its largest, which may be the reason that it was mistaken for a small shark.
