I don’t deny that sometimes sharks bite and even kill humans. However, 7 million times more often, humans kill sharks. Other animals like hippopotamus and crocodiles, tigers, lions, even bees and domestic dogs, kill more people than sharks. Of all potentially dangerous animals, sharks kill the fewest number of people.
Diving with sharks can be potentially dangerous. Do NOT closely interact with sharks, touch them, feed them unless you are very experienced and know exactly how to interpret their body language. While it might look easy and harmless to interact with sharks the way we do, we do NOT encourage this type of underwater activity. (Felix Leander)
When you’re under water and you see the thing you were taught your whole life to fear, and it doesn’t want to hurt you, and it is the most beautiful thing you’ve ever seen; your whole world changes.(Rob Stewart, Sharkwater)
People who don’t know much about sharks might want to call them the ‘Jaws of Death’. But if you are familiar with the complexity of the ecosystem of the oceans, you will know that those are indeed ‘Jaws of Life’.
They belong either in the ocean or on the harzardous waste dump!
Isn’t it ironic that shark fin soup, which is believed to be an aphrodisiac, can actually make people infertile and impotent, because of the very high methyl-mercury content in shark meat?
