Great White shark washed ashore!

A great white washes ashore on a Lowcountry beach.

The 13-foot-long shark was found at Morris Island last week by fishermen.

The Department of Natural Marine Biologists says the shark may have starved to death or been stranded.

"They are extremely rare in this area. They're actually rare throughout their range. Their large apex predators, so there's basically not a lot of them around.. And they are actually solitary animals," DNR Marine Biologist, Josh Loefer said.

Great white sharks like cool coastal waters and are typically between 12 and 15 feet in length.
