Giant Shark.

Shark Mouth Entrance

Giant shark serves as the entrance to a beachwear store. It has been repaired and repainted. The best light for photos is in the morning.

Shark missing some teeth.

This shark is currently in poor shape. Most of the teeth have been knocked off of it :(

Shark entrance.

Seaside Shark

Palace Beachwear and Gifts recently repaired its giant shark doorway, removed a rusted chain link fence, and replaced it with a painted wooden fence to add curb appeal to the Corpus Christi shoreline. The kids will love being swallowed by a shark at this photo opportunity.

Beware! The teeth on this shark may leave a mark if you don't enter or exit towards the middle of the opening.

One of the better shark mouth entrances we've seen!
