Sharks inhabited the earth 200 million years before the dinosaurs appeared and have changed only minimally during that time.
It’s a Man’s World
Despite an equal amount of men and women swimming in the ocean, men account for nearly 90 percent of shark attack victims.
Stomachs of Steel
Shoes, chairs, boxes of nails, drums, entire bottles of wine, and the rear half of a horse are just some of the many bizarre objects that have been found in sharks’ stomachs over the years.
If you have a fear of sharks, then this isn’t going to help you. About two-thirds of shark attacks on humans have occurred in less than six feet of water.
What are the Chances?
However, shark attacks and deaths resulting from them are very rare. About 10 people died during shark attacks in 2013. You have a 1 in 3.7 million chance of being killed by a shark, which means you have a greater chance of being killed by bee stings or struck dead by lightning.
