Was it a great white shark?

It is still unclear which type of shark attacked Kelly so fatally. However, it is suspected that it could have been a great white shark.

Drone photographer Eric Mailander told local TV station “KRON4” that he counted 15 great white sharks off the coast on Saturday morning. Another photographer had captured Great White Sharks in front of Manresa Beach on Friday.
