and the majority of the programs are about shark attacks. I know it’s very sensational and fascinating, but would it kill Discovery to make a few documentaries about the other 300-something species of shark that exist?
Yes it would, because those sharks don’t treat humans like sample platters at a grocery store. And THAT’S BORING.
^ Bramble sharks won’t hurt you. They’re adorably shy. Bashful, even.
^ Frilled sharks often live too deep in the ocean to come into contact with humans, and probably wouldn’t know what to do if they found one. Just stare at it, I suppose. Then lose interest and swim away.
^ African angelsharks can cause harm, but will leave you alone if you leave them alone. This one looks like it’s saying FABULOUS.
^ Try saying “shortnose sawshark” five times fast. I think they saw at their prey until they’ve cut it into manageable pieces.*
^ Horn sharks can be easily approached and will only bite you if you provoke them.
^ Brown banded bamboo sharks can be kept as pets. This guy looks so cute and cuddly. It would probably suck off my face if I tried to cuddle it though. :/
^ The pygmy shark, which at 10” is one of the smallest species in existence, is also bioluminescent. It’s an Avatar shark!
There. Go out and find sharks that aren’t great whites, whale sharks, threshers, white-tips, hammerheads, bull sharks or tiger sharks. You’ll be surprised at the variety and unique beauty of each species.
* I’m kidding. I don’t know why they have saws for noses.
