The man who runs the International Shark Attack File at the Florida Museum of Natural History on the University of Florida campus says a new disaster movie about sharks and extreme weather is "total bulls#!t."
Asked this evening about the made-for-TV movie Sharknado that garnered much attention on Twitter tonight, George H. Burgess dismissed the possibility of the film's premise: that massive tornados could create water spouts in the Pacific ocean, suck up carnivorous sharks and dump them all over Los Angeles where they could attack humans and wreck general havoc.
"Total bulls#!t," he told Free Times via email. "Quote me."
Burgess teaches marine biology and researches shark attacks. He's working on an outreach project on shark awareness.
The International Shark Attack File contains more than 5,300 individual investigations of shark attacks world-wide, according to its website.
Discounts on restaurants, stores, shows, nightspots and more.
