The most dangerous shark: predator versus simple human carelessness?
I’m not going to describe you an idyllic portrayal of these aquatic predators, a shark is not a faithful labrador or a little cat on the net too kawai, some species are really dangerous.
Most dangerous shark
Five species stand out and are particularly dangerous for humans: the great white shark, the tiger shark, the oceanic shark, the great hammerhead shark, the bulldog shark has done some damage. The tiger shark is certainly the most dangerous shark because it deliberately attacks marine hunters and sometimes bathers without provocation, he is responsible for most attacks on humans in the tropics.

Shark attack: triggers
As you understand, « Jaws » is only an apocalyptic scenario but if the sharks are time bombs there are triggers that you can avoid. If you are not a surfer lying on his board, the shark will not confuse you with his favorite luxury meal: the seal ! The victims of shark attacks are often underwater, hunters who carry their preys on them and have a smell of blood that emanates from them and the surfers. In general, the shark avoids the man, if you’ve been attacked it is usually because of food stimulation and therefore the smell of blood that will attract them: if you stay near the coast you really reduce the risk to get to know sharks too cloose… Not dangerous for diver, much more for surfers. .
Preconization et vigilance
If shark fins still pay the price of traditional Chinese medicine it is because of magic legends, if some doctors recommend this recipe is to restore vigor because of technical failures of all kinds. The shark is an extraordinary species and depending on its group, it may not be dangerous. Yes you understand, the sharks of « Jaws » are a very special cast! Sea and mountain are exhilarating, dangerous adventure places. Deciding to climb the mountain without following a guide’s instructions is like diving with sharks without a monitor and ignoring their proper safety instructions. Just like Icarus if you approach too close, you could burn your wings. So save the sharks without going too close … Whatever our fears, the disappearance of sharks would be a terrible natural disaster for the balance of the marine ecosystem: let’s be vigilant.
