Fierce Lake Erie Shark

The shark now has a website address advertised on his belly. It's right on the side of the road. We didn't even turn our car off!

That URL mostly ruins photo ops. Hiss!

The shark has been given a fresh coat of paint and is looking great. He's in a little gravel patch outside a taxidermy business. Pull into the lot to take a photo.

Fierce Lake Erie Shark

Even though sharks do not live in Lake Erie, a fierce-looking one guards the entrance to Mike's Taxidermy in Port Clinton. It is about four feet high and has an open mouth filled with sharp teeth. It was quite a surprise to see when I was driving by.
