Nashville, TN - People around the world have been sharing stories of positive changes to our planet as a result of humans spending more time indoors. Less smog, cleaner air, and thriving wildlife are just a few examples. Now, after hundreds of years of presumed extinction, lawn sharks have reflourished in record numbers.
"We've never seen anything like it," says Dr. James Hamlet, from the Center for Suburban Wildlife. "If our numbers are correct, the current lawn shark population exceeds any recorded number in history. It's going to be an exciting summer."
Hamlet says lawn sharks tend to be nocturnal but did say there has been an uptick in sightings during early morning hours. He also admitted that there has been a significant increase in reports of missing lawn care workers.
"At this point, we can't verify a correlation between lawn sharks and missing gardeners, but I encourage you to run to the nearest sidewalk if you see one," Hamlet said.
Lawn sharks typically feed on small animals but have been known to attack humans when food is scarce.
According to the 2020 deadliness scale, lawn sharks are ranked more lethal than murder hornets but less lethal than Carole Baskin.
