Some South Florida beaches are closed after hundreds of sharks were spotted swimming along the shore.
Huge groups of sharks have been seen from Boca Raton to Jupiter since the beginning of March. Marine biologists say the sharks are migrating north after spending the winter in the south Atlantic.
Lifeguards have been keeping swimmers out of the water because the sharks can be dangerous.
Our sister station in West Palm Beach, WPTV, sent its helicopter out to capture images of the sharks.
Doctors in West Palm Beach say they treat at least five to six shark bite victims a year. Injuries are usually minor, but even small shark bites can put victims at risk of infections.
To protect yourself from getting bitten by a shark, make sure lifeguards are on duty when you go swimming in the ocean. Also, leave your jewelry at home. Scientists say sharks are attracted to silver, along with the colors yellow and gold.
