A MONSTER hammerhead shark caught off NSW’s northern coast could soon become a Queensland tourism attraction.
Famed Hervey Bay shark hunter Vic Hislop has bought the 1200kg, 5m monster and this week transported the amazing catch to Queensland.
The huge shark made headlines in northern NSW last month when it was caught by a fishing boat four nautical miles off the coast of Evans Head.
It had eaten a smaller shark hooked by the fishing boat and then became trapped itself.
At 5m long, the shark is longer than a family car and could probably comfortably fit a few family members inside its massive belly.
Researchers estimate the shark was at least 40 years old.
