Virginia Aquarium creates a map of sharks' locations

In a hysterical Facebook post, the Aquarium makes it very clear sharks are in the ocean and connecting waterways.

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. — The Virginia Aquarium & Marine Science Center posted a map Wednesday showing where sharks are located in Virginia Beach. 

The map highlights the ocean and waterway that connects to it. (We can't make this up)

Around 3:45 p.m., the Aquarium's Facebook post had over 2.8K interactions and almost 1.7K shares.

If you notice, the Aquarium even circled itself since they do have a shark tank in the building!

The sarcastic post comes after a video of a shark near the shoreline at the Oceanfront went viral.
