In October 2011, Sky News reported on some intimidating new inhabitants of the Carbrook Golf Club in Brisbane. If you thought the alligators common on various courses in the U.S. were disconcerting, how about a half dozen bullsharks chilling right at the surface of a lake in the center of a course?
Obviously the sharks aren't natural inhabitants of a manmade lake, rather they ended up there several years prior during a major flood, which swept them from a river that had broken its banks. You wouldn't think something like that would've ended well for the bullsharks, but apparently they've really taken to their new home.
The sharks haven't just been surviving, they've been thriving. They've been breeding and just generally making themselves at home. Golfers can see their fins thrashing around the surface just yards away from several greens.
I bet no one is chasing golf balls into the water hazard there.
