Dangerous Sharks 1

Are sharks really dangerous? 
Well, watching ‘Jaws’ could tell you something about that. Any shark which is bigger than 6 feet (1.8 meters) is a possible threat to humans due to its size and adaptations, like jaws and stronger teeth.
These sharks do not specifically troll for human flesh, often humans are mistaken for seals, sea lions or other common prey animals. 
According to the official list issued by Institute of Shark Attack Files (ISAF) of most dangerous sharks the White Shark tops the list with 451 attacks recorded till May 2009. The other followers are Tiger Shark (158 attacks), Bull Shark (120 attacks), Requiem Shark (75 attacks), and Sand Tiger Shark (59 attacks).


Great White Shark
The great white shark is recognized to have most fatal attacks on humans. The danger related with this species is unquestionably associated with its size and the curious way of approaching its assumed prey. Since swimmers and surfers resemble seal or sea lion from below the water, they are mistaken as the shark’s usual prey.

  6. Sharks scare the crap out of me. I don't go in natural bodies of water. If I can't see what's in the water, I don't go in it.

  15. People get too scared of sharks. We have lots of sharks around were I live, especially bull sharks in the river mouth which will tear you apart! But if your smart, don't go swimming when the waters murky, when the weathers stormy, at dusk, or when theres lots of birds in the water you'll be right.
