oh, no; if there is a seal, the sharks can't be far behind, looking for dinner...

Is the Neponset at Lower Mills salty enough for sharks?

Allegedly they swim up the Potomac

After all there are Bluefish in that section too.

Not a threat to worry about but an interesting bit of history for sure! https://www.atlasobscura.com/places/matawan-new-jersey-shark-attack-of-1916

Now all we need is a bear sighting. Does Greater Boston actually have bears?

Arlington had a capture/relocation within the last year.

There are multiple stories on here over the years about bears visiting the city or surrounding suburbs.

But don't worry because this guy is ready:

The Commonwealth of Massachusetts website lists the range of black bears in Massachusetts (which are the only species of bear you'd expect to see on this side of the country) and it depends on what you mean by Greater Boston. Their "established range" is mostly outside 495, while their "expanding range" is inside 495 but still outside 128. But it also says their population is growing so hey who knows.

Inside 128. Maybe Metro Boston? I looked up Greater Boston online and somehow it included parts of Rhode Island and New Hampshire.
when did that happen?

Boston would be greater if it had bears.

It does have Bruins, and sometimes they are pretty great.
