Experts Say 2 Different Sharks Responsible For Attacks In Seychelles

VIA – THE SUN UK

Fears of 2 sharks on loose at island

TWO killer sharks are roaming the Seychelles waters where British honeymooner Ian Redmond was killed last week, experts now believe.

Marine biologists found different “bite signatures” on IT consultant Ian – who was killed in front of his horrified bride Gemma – and French victim Nicolas Virolle.

Ian, 30, is believed to have been savaged by either a Great White or Tiger shark with serrated teeth. But Nicolas, 32 – who died 16 days earlier on the same beach, Anse Lazio, Praslin island – had more jagged injuries typical of a Bull Shark.

Tooth DNA results are expected in a week. Beach bathing bans are still in place.

A SURFER aged 49 died in a Great White attack yesterday in shallow waters off Plettenberg Bay, South Africa.
