No wonder “Jersey Shore” cast member Vinny Guadagnino is headed back to Staten Island: a 12-foot great white shark has been seen in the waters off Island Beach State Park.
Last month’s sighting by a boater was recorded but not confirmed by the Coast Guard, the Bergen Record reported.
There hasn’t been a fatal shark attack in the tristate area in nearly a century, but lifeguards along that stretch of New Jersey shore are on alert.
“Any shark larger than 6 feet that’s predatory is an animal that we should be wary of and treat with respect,” said George Burgess, curator of the International Shark Attack File.
