Surf Time to recharge

Shark or Dolphin?

I’m on vacation for a bit. Somewhere warmer than this and with less sharks.


Back in a week… Back. No dolphins, but lots of turtles. Oh yeah, no sharks, either.

  1. That’s one long skinny dolphin. Probably the kind with lots of sharp pointy teeth too. I can’t remember the exact species name… Something like “shar…” I think.

    I hate dolphins. I was swimming in the Atlantic Ocean once and a pod of dolphins brutally gangbanged me. It was awful.

    What’s with today’s Jerkcity? Some new format including the transcript, or just the fact that “Net” actually did say all that stuff?

    Can’t say I like the addition of the jerktext actually… its presence sort of undermines the visual expressions of the characters. There are specific times when, for example, Spigot’s “pleased smile” look or Pants’ “howl of anguish” look are integral to my enjoyment of the panel – having the text there pulls you out of the strip.

    If it’s a shark it’ll have a vertical tail fin, if it’s dolphin it will have a horizontal tail fin. It looks like a dolphin to me.

    it’s definately a shark it’s dorsal fin is pointed at the tip which is common amongst sharks, also if you look at it’s face it’s head is flat where as with dolphins it’s more rounded. It is obviously a shark. look at other pictures and you’ll see the resemblance!! sharks are known to migrate to warmer waters hence why the shark is in the surf, he is looking for food duh! j/p… but yes it is a shark so be careful out there!!!

  10. holy freakin crap if thats a shark your dead even if its a dolphin id still be scared dolphins a freaky too my aunts friend was swimmin with them on a little trip thang and it slapped her with its tail and nearly killed her!!!

    In this photo it is hard to tell being that the water can deceive the human eye in many ways. Ive studied and fished for sharks for a while now and I can tell it might be a dolphin by the curvature on the rear part of the dorsal fin. There is also no second dorsal fin which would occur near the tail on the top of most large shark speicies. This just looks like a large bottle nose dolphin.

    oh my gosh! I hate sharks and i am so afraid of them1 I doen’t even like to see them on pictures!

    I say it’s a shark. The shape of it looks more like a sshark but it’s hard to tell. Things in water are very hard to see.

    I say it’s a dolphin because it doesen’t look like it has a big mouth like sharks do. It looks like a skiny nose with the flipper kinda beside it. But it’s hard to tell. It is very hard to see things under the water.

    It’s now, oh, 4 years after the fact and we’ve still got users weighing in with “I’m an expert and it’s a…” despite the original photographer’s testimony and followup photos being linked to at the top of the article.
