A simple reason why you should stay out of floodwaters in Australia: Sharks

Cyclone Debbie, which ravaged the coast of Queensland, Australia, is fortunately now a thing of the past.

But residents are finding unexpected visitors stranded in odd places.

Like this bull shark which was discovered washed up on a road in the town of Ayr. Yikes.

The picture was posted by the Queensland Fire and Emergency service on its Twitter account Thursday, as part of a warning to residents about the dangers of going into floodwaters.

"Think it's safe to go back in the water? Think again!" the tweet reads.
