Video: Hammerhead Shark Cruising Perdido Key Beach Draws Large Crowd

A hammerhead shark close to shore draws a large crowd at Perdido Key Beach in Pensacola, FL.

Hammerhead shark at Perdido Key Beach
The video starts off with the videographer filming his family but his attention quickly turns to the shoreline when he is alerted about a shark in the water.  The shark is a small hammerhead which appears to be about four to five foot in length.

As he films the shark cruising the shoreline, a large crowd begins to form.  Within no time, it becomes apparent that the shark is the Grand Marshal of a human beach parade as several dozen people excitedly follow the shark along the shoreline.

The video was posted on Youtube by Dan Wilderson and is 2:10 in length.
