Many people think sharks are MAN EATINGBLOOD THIRSTYKILLER CREATURES!!!!!! Right? But they're NOT. Believe it or not sharks are probably my FAVORITE marine animal. They fascinate me despite their mean looking eyes and killer teeth that are made to shred and rip meat. In my spare time you will catch me watching shark attack T.V shows and everyone that I have watched ends in telling us why the shark attacked. Usually sharks mistaken people for seals or when you are splashing around they may think that you are prey that is in distress or injured.

So before swimming in the ocean make sure that you know what to do to prevent a shark attack or what to do in an attack:

  • Are you injured or bleeding? Yes/No

  • Do you have trouble swimming? Yes/No

  • Do you know what to do if an attack happens? Stay calm and try to keep breathing normally when you reach the surface raise your arm up high and try to hit shark in the eye (this usually makes shark release you is you are in its mouth) Don't worry if you can't hit its eye just don't take the risk that it may tear your arm off. And remember: it is very normal to panic but try your best to calm yourself.

  • Swim with a group, Sharks normally attack when you are swimming alone but when you are in a group they will know that they defenseless against you because you are with others that will help you.

REMEMBER: Before you get in the water make sure that you KNOW about the area you are swimming in, you never know, you could be swimming in a shark feeding ground!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
