Shark Attacks

May 6, 2008

Torah Kachur

 

 

Shark Week.  Jaws.  Bruce.  Sharks fascinate us, possibly because of they demonstrate a perfectly evolved organism for their niche, or because they have really sharp teeth.  Either way, sharks are one of the most powerful, deadly and inescapable predators on the planet.

 

Sharks are predators from tip to tail and their attacks send chills down spines of channel surfers and board surfers alike. 

 

Sharks are incredible and not because of shark fin soup that, by the way, has absolutely no health benefits whatsoever.  No matter how many Hong Kong restauranteurs tell you otherwise.
