A photo has emerged that allegedly shows a man bravely fighting his way out of a shark after being gobbled up by it.
But the image from Australia isn’t all it appears to be and has actually been staged, with the man inside the beast not really having been eaten.
Instead the unnamed practical joker has managed to catch a shark, carve out its insides and then jump in.
The picture is on display at the Metung Hotel in Victoria and always causes a stir when it is viewed by visitors.
But not everyone is pleased with the fisherman’s joke, with some animal lovers concerned with the way the shark has been treated.
Athol B Foster wrote on Twitter: ‘It’s not funny at all, very bad judgement to all concerned.’
Alisa Schwartz added: ‘Man inside #shark, ‘stabs’ his way out – yes folks, you read that correctly. deplorable & heinous!! ‘
