Strange things that happen when the weather gets really cold. The record breaking cold snap that has hit the USA has led to sharks becoming frozen and dying form cardiac arrest.

Four thresher sharks killed by “cold shock” have been found by the Atlantic White Shark Conservancy washed up on beaches in Cape Cod.

After finding one of the sharks the group posted on their Facebook the following message.

“We hauled the shark off the beach and it is currently thawing at NOAA Fisheries Service to be dissected later. A true sharkcicle!”

Sharks freezing to death is just one of many strange things that happen when the weather gets extremely cold…….
