The latest in the long line of strange things we have seen in 2020 is a video of a bird flying with a large fish - which some guessed to be a small shark - gripped firmly within its claws. Footage shot last week at USA's Myrtle Beach shows the predatory bird flying over beachgoers with the fish dangling from its claws and has elicited stunned reactions from social media viewers.
Take a look at the video below:
The unusual scene was captured in South Carolina by Facebook user Kelly Burbage. Ms Burbage shared the video on a public Facebook group, writing: "Eagle? Condor? Caught a shark in Myrtle Beach!" The clip was then re-posted on Twitter, where it has collected a whopping 14.8 million views and thousands of comments.
Twitter account 'Tracking Sharks' asked for the public's help in identifying the bird as well as the fish while re-posting the video, which shows the fish trying to free itself from the clutches of the bird in vain. "Anyone know what type of bird this is and is it holding a shark?" Tracking Sharks asked.
Many Twitter users tried to guess the kind of fish the bird held - and a debate ranged between a small shark, a ladyfish or a Spanish mackerel.
