Bondi Shark Photobomb Is Fake, Says Internet

Spot Anderson

The Bondi Beach photobombing shark appears to be a fake.

Well, either that or it's the same great white shark snapped for National Geographic in Mexico last year, in the exact same position.

Here's the proof:

The story broke yesterday when news outlets picked up on a photo taken this month by Bondi Fit coach Spot Anderson showing a bunch of swimmers out at the Bondi shark net being shadowed by a monster shark.

We smelled something fishy from the beginning, but it was Instagram user @QuothRaven who found a shark matching the photo's silhouette.

While Anderson swore the photo was legitimate, saying: "People can believe what they want".

This morning, he's yet to answer his phone.

Perhaps he's gone fishing.
