A what?
We can start breathing again.
- Is Ben getting plenty of pictures?
- Y ou bet he is.

What is this bite radius crap?
Y ou stuff your friggir head in there man,
and find out if it's a man-eater.

All I'm saying,
is that it may not be the shark.

I want you to meet Matt.
This is Larry Vaughn, our Mayor.

- Matt's from the Oceanographic Institute.
- Nice to meet you.

There are all kinds of sharks in the waters.
Hammerheads, white tips, blues, makos...
And the chances that these bozos got
the exact shark...

- There are no other sharks like this here.
- It's 100 to 1.

I'm not saying that this is not the shark.
It probably is, Martin.

It's a man-eater.
It's extremely rare for these waters.

The fact is,
the bite radius on this animal is different...

...than the wounds on the victim.
I want to be sure. Y ou want to be sure.
We all want to be sure. Okay?
What I want to do is very simple.

The digestive system
of this animal is very, very slow.

Let's cut it open.
Whatever it's eaten in the last 24 hours...

...is bound to still be in there.
And then we'll be sure.

It may be the only way to confirm it.
Look, fellas let's be reasonable.
This is not the time or the place...
...to perform some kind
of a half-assed autopsy on a fish.

I am not going to stand here
and see that thing cut open...

...and see that little kintner boy spill out
all over the dock.

I just found out...
