Seeing a shark can be pretty scary. It’s okay to admit that. Sharks are some of the ocean’s most powerful predators. And yes, they do occasionally bite humans that enter their habitat. However, the notion that sharks are the vengeful, human-eating beasts that we see in the movies couldn’t be farther from the truth. On the contrary, an estimated 100 million sharks are killed by humans each year, putting a number of species on the brink of extinction. While we often villainize them in our stories, sharks may actually have more reasons to fear us.

    Sharks have patrolled the waters for over 400 million years, and while they are powerful creatures, they actually have more reasons to fear us. What intrigues you most about sharks?

    My favourite shark is the Hammerhead which believe it or not are actually quite shy. Btw not all sharks have teeth and bites.

    I don’t like how people invade someone’s territory then wanna kill them. People wanna rule so bad. I’m glad some this young lady is trying to understand why they act a certain way.

  • Calla Nightshade on July 8, 2021

    The first time I ever watched shark week it was a documentary on "the worst shark attack in history" when a crew survived the sinking of a ship they were on. The narrator of the TRAILER said "when the ship name I don't remember sank, the surviving crew prayed they would be found. Cut to sharks swimming below Unfortunately… They were"

    Imagine if the guy wasn't really killed by a shark
