Nice shark, ridiculous anchoring design.

3

I'm pleased with the way this looks, but the anchoring stakes are grossly inadequate. The so-called "6" lawn stakes are actually just 6" (60 D) common nails. (These are not meant for ground contact, by the way.) The nails go through channels along the bottom of the shark (which is in two segments) and into the ground, but one of the channels in unusable because the shark flipper above it is bent (designed that way, it appears) and blocks access to the channel. Furthermore, because the shark is a tall, flat, lightweight sheet of metal, it presents a large surface for the wind to topple. Mine did just that, even though I built up some soil around the bottom of the piece. I am going to have to devise a more sensible support for this thing, or maybe put a large rock behind it to hold it up (not an attractive solution). This item should come with two-prong anchor stakes, or be designed with a flanged footing. As it is, it's way too flimsy.

Had just removed a queen palm so had a hole to fill next to the pool. Wanted a unique adfition to go with our quirky decorating taste and this fit right in. Added a Jaws inspired "scuba tank" for affect now just need to name her. Kind of feeling like Ginger....

Unique addition to our nautical theme back yard

We put it in our backyard , next to another metal shark figure. We added a Narragansett beer can in it's teeth, to make it more like Jaws.

Love the shark and so do the neighbors

Really love the shark. The picture really doesn't do it justice when you have the right location and by the pond is great!

What a great shark

What a great shark -- it's easy to install, and it looks awesome; especially when next to the sea serpent from the same artist. I have landscape spotlights pointed at each section, making it look extra cool at night. Definitely a cool addition to my yard.
