Sure, sharks are scary. But at least you can see one when it’s coming for you. Bacteria? Not so much. And five cases of infection caused by the very ominous sounding flesh-eating bacteria have been found in the Chesapeake Bay and its tributaries so far this year.

(Just a quick warning to anyone squeamish out there: do NOT google image search flesh-eating bacteria if you’re reading this over breakfast.)

Meet Septima. She’s a 13-foot-long, half-ton tiger shark, and she recently took a vacation to Ocean City.

We know this because Ocearch, the global shark tracker, put a tracking tag on her back in May when she was hanging out in South Carolina. Since then, she’s traveled more than 3,000 miles up and down the East Coast — including her recent Ocean City jaunt.

Our very own Robert O’Brien has been detailing the increasingly silly regulations that are popping up in Ocean City–no swearing, no laser pointers, etc. But increased regulation of jet packs? That actually does sound like a good idea.

Every year, the Natural Resources Defense Council looks at beaches across the United States, measuring whether their water quality is safe for swimmers. Maryland beaches usually measure up… okay, with about 6 percent of water samples exceeding the NRDC’s limits for, um, acceptable contamination. (Want to know more about what “contamination” consists of? No, you don’t. But if you really do, check out the full report here.)

First-Ever Shark Attack at Rehoboth

Note: this is not the shark in question....
Note: this is not the shark in question….

Planning to go to the beach this weekend? Maybe you shouldn’t read on any farther. Because Rehoboth just recorded its first-ever shark attack (don’t worry, the kid who got bit is okay), and a shark-tracker has spotted a great white traveling between Virginia Beach and Ocean City. But shark attacks are really rare, and you probably shouldn’t let that stop you from getting in the water. Right? RIGHT?
