Yeah, they are curious creatures, very cool killing machines though

Defiantly predators, but they do their jobs.

I read the first few sentences and then stopped. Its a shame that they have to fake something to get even higher ratings. It's going to make some people more likely to not believe things. Very misleading, but at least now we know.

Marketing - it's a shame, isn't it? There are so many amazing and wonderful things in the oceans, why bother to make things up??? Ugh.

Marketing is huge in our hobby too. That's why I'm thankful for this website.

I'm not placing blame. I'm actually defending the shark.

You can't blame a shark for anything. They are called PREDATORS for a reason. The ocean did not come about to provide humanity with a giant toilet bowl to swim in, were just very self centered and everything MUST apply to us or it's WRONG lol. The other day on the news people were appalled by what was washing up on the Long Island shore, I was like HELLO!? Your swimming in urine and feces and other bodily fluids, a needle and used condom should be the least of your concern
