These Sharks Were Discovered Washed Up, Completely Frozen To The Bone

A cold snap in the United States has devastating effects on underwater wildlife. The discovery of these beached frozen sharks sent shivers down the spines of the researchers! 

North America has been hit hard this winter. The cold snap crossed most of the continent, causing temperatures to drop to -50°C in some areas. Fortunately for us, avoiding the cold and staying warm is easy. However, for wild animals, the situation is completely different.

The frightening discovery 

Atlantic White Shark Conservancy happened upon a rather frightening discovery on the beaches of Massachusetts: the volunteers found three beached frozen shark carcasses.In fact, underwater fauna is not used to withstand very low temperatures in seawater, so sharks have paid for the consequences. The extreme cold costed these poor animals their lives.

So if you think you've got it bad this winter, keep that in mind when you see the footage.
