Shark Attacks


Have you ever wondered why sharks attack humans. Or what sharks you should be weary of?

Shark attacks are rare, but they do happen, in 2015 there were ninety-eight shark attacks!

The chances of you getting attacked by a shark are 1 in 3.7 million. So, why do sharks attack? Only about twelve shark species out of the three hundred have been involved in a shark attack.

Sharks attack humans when they are confused or curious. If a human is splashing in the water the shark might get curious and that might start an attack if the shark gets startled. To make a shark attack less likely you can stay in a group and stay close to shore. Sharks will not attack a group of humans because it is harder for the shark and staying close to shore means sharks will not be able to reach you.

For example, a 19-year-old boy jumped into shark infested water and is now missing. He is thought to have been eaten by a shark.

Hopefully there won’t be any more casualties from sharks but that is unlikely So Stay safe. Hopefully you have learned something from this article and will stay in a group close to shore.
