There's no doubt that sharks rule the seas. Unfortunately, they need our help to stay that way.
Shark Week is right around the corner. If you are like most of us here, it's a week to call in sick or take a vacation because it's hard to peel away from the TV. Since 24 hour programing about sharks is fairly readily available, an information surplus on these giant fish might exist. However, there's a good chance you don't know everything about them.
NatGeo Just put out a little infomercial sharing some insight and statistics on sharks that might hit home for a lot of people. Yes, shark can be scary and do sometimes eat people, but they are still fascinating. Just watch below and see if you learn something new.
I'm going fishing for makos off the California coast in a few weeks. I expect that to be a trip I'll never forget. This is especially true now that I know those kind of sharks can produce heat and swim up to 60 mile per hour.
Hopefully I will encounter one swimming that fast with my fly in it's mouth!
