- Two bull sharks, renown for their aggression, were spotted swimming through the flooded streets of a small town in the inundated Australian state of Queensland, the Queensland Times reported Friday.The amazing sightings were made in Goodna, a center of around 8,000 people which lies between the state capital Brisbane and the nearby southeast city of Ipswich.

One of the sharks was spotted by local butcher Steve Bateman swimming in floodwaters near his shop Thursday while another one was seen in water covering the town's main street.

"They are regularly in the Brisbane River and often swim up. I know a number of fishermen who have caught bull sharks.”Goodna was flooded by water up to 25-foot (eight meters) deep during this week's deluge which has impacted 75 percent of Queensland.

Rescue teams and victims of the flooding have already had to deal with crocodiles and snakes, with Australia's northeast -- which has been battered by weeks of flooding -- home to some of the world's most dangerous species.

That's a pretty big shark, considering where it was found.

I'm sure there's a landshark joke somewhere in the story.

Just as long as they don't have laser beams attached to their foreheads the Ausies have nothing to worry about.
