Update: Dolphin? See below …

June Emerson took her 12-year-old son and his friend to Manhattan Beach in California on Friday. She snapped a few photos of the kids thrashing about in the water, as moms are wont to do.

It was only afterward, when Emerson was reviewing her beach pics, that she noticed Quinn and his friend weren’t alone, KTLA reports. Accidental Shark!

Mom played it just right: “Of course, I told my kids it was dolphin, as we live at the beach and are in the waters here almost daily.”

UPDATE: Is this actually just a dolphin? Science.

If you’re thinking, “Oh, no way, that’s just Jimmy Kimmel is a sharksuit,” this doesn’t appear to be another hoax. Shark sightings are increasingly common at Manhattan Beach, if this video from Jay Dohner is any indication.

Researchers say great whites will get ornery if they feel threatened.
