Seriously. Several things are more likely to kill you than a shark.

 

-Cows are more likely to kill you than a shark because of cow tipping.

-A falling coconut is also more likely to kill you. Blunt force trauma and all.

-Mosquitos carrying malaria are waaay more likely to kill you. Because, y’know, malaria is deadly.

-Bee stings kill 100 people annually. 

-Hippos kill 2,900 people a year. Yes, hippos. Let that sink in for just a brief moment.

 

Most sharks only attack if provoked or don’t attack at all. 38 people die annually from being struck by lightning in coastal states, yet less 1 person per year has their life claimed by a shark in Florida.

Sharks CAN be dangerous, but you can do some simple things to lower your risk of being attacked (ex: Not going into water while bleeding or with shiny jewelry)

"Each year there are about 50 to 70 confirmed shark attacks and 5 to 15 shark-attack fatalities around the world. The numbers have risen over the past several decades but not because sharks are more aggressive: Humans have simply taken to coastal waters in increasing numbers." -National Geographic

 

"From 2005 to 2014, an average of six people per year died worldwide after being attacked by a shark. In the U.S., roughly one person per year is killed by a shark." -USA Today

 

And according to a Florida Museum website, in 2017 there were 88 unprovoked shark attacks and only 5 of them were fatal.

Sharks are know to attack humans, but not for food. When a shark attacks a human, it's most likely because that human was too close to a sharks territory and the shark felt threatened. Another reason why they attack is because of common mistakes. If a human wore flashy jewelry while swimming, it may pass off as prey for the shark, and they will attack if they haven't eaten. If a human happens to be bleeding or close to where an animal recently exposed blood to the water, sharks will be drawn to the area and be on high alert for anything swimming. 

 

Splashing around ridiculously while in waters prone to sharks signifies wounded prey, causing piqued interest and a most likely attempt of an attack.  

 

If a shark does attack a human, it will be in defense or a mistake. Shark do not eat humans because apparently we're too bland and they will certainly spit out any severed parts they took. 

 

Fun fact: If you are attack by a shark and are stuck in their jaws, aim for their Eyes, nose and Gills. (A shark closes their eyes when feeding to protect them but can still be hurt if they were to get poked.)

-------------------------------------------------------------

 

Hippopotamus:

 

Yes it is true that Hippo's kill more humans a year than sharks do. You may not believe this but Hippos are Omnivores, meaning they eat both greens and meat. Though they lean more towards greens. A hippo is more deadly than a shark because of they powerful jaws combined with elongated canines that can snapped a Saltwater crocodile in half (Which is very possible). They can run up to 30 Km/h and can trample you with ease. They can be extremely aggressive in order to protect their young and female.

 

Fun Fact: If you ever happen to run into a Bull (Alpha Hippopotamus) Get to High ground (A tree or High cliff) Do not try and face the creature Hippos cannot Climb (of course) and don't have the Physical strength or proper "tools" to knock down trees (An Elephant or Rhinoceros for example).

 

If you have any questions about this explanation or what for Fact about other animals, Ask me or Google. :)

The media paints sharks and a lot of other animals in ways that are worse than what they actually are

Obviously, no one should just go up to a shark, or a wolf or hippo or any wild animal as if it won’t do anything to them, because that’s how all the provoked attacks happen

If you just leave them alone, nothing will happen to you or the animal

And humans kill many many more sharks than they kill humans

We breathe and live and eat.

 

Everything that breatheslives, and eats matters.

 

And when something matters, it deserves to exist.

 

Why? Because, coming back around again, they have a purpose.

 

They are just like us.

This thread is amazing. Only three types of sharks have killed more than ten humans without provocation - bull sharks, great whites, and tiger sharks. Oceanic whitetips are also pretty dangerous, but they live in the deep ocean and are hunted for their huge fins. Besides, even the most deadly sharks can sometimes be friendly, if you watch some shark documentaries. There was this one show where a diver got really attached to tiger sharks, and wasn't afraid to swim with them. The tiger sharks were protective of him and defended him from harm. 

By the way, does anyone else watch shark week? I know it can be really dramatic at times but if you ignore the music it's still a cool documentary.

Also, fun fact. More people die from VENDING MACHINES than sharks every single year. 

 

 

Also, do you want the ENTIRE OCEAN ECOSYSTEM to die? 

 

You are more likely to die from playing American Football then from a shark.

 

24 People die a year from Champagne Corks. Sharks only kill 1 person a year in the USA. 

 

Oh this is a good one, 6,000 people die from TRIPPING every year. At home, over sidewalk cracks, everywhere

 

3,000 People die from eating lunch.

 

300 people die from falling ladders

 

 

This one is fun, more people die from HOT TAP WATER than sharks every year

 

Falling Icicles kill more people than sharks. 

 

 

People die from FALLING OUT OF BEDs, more than sharks. 

 

That should be it...

I’ll figure it out.-Me 

 

here's all the ways sharks are like us:

 

1.) They live.

2.) They breathe.

3.) They eat.

4.) They reproduce.

5.) They are a part of a food web and chain.

6.) They think.

7.) They hunt.

8.) They know.

9.) They can learn.

10.) They have instincts.

11.) They exist.

12.) They matter.

13.) They have a purpose.

14.) They are animals.

15.) They live in this world.

16.) They live in this universe.

17.) They know.

18.) They protect.

19.) They defend.

20.) They fight.

21.) They do what they must to survive.

 

a few reasons they're BETTER than us:

 

1.) They technically don't pollute.

2.) They don't destroy entire ecosystems.

3.) They are amazing, intriguing, and downright wondrous creatures.

4.) They don't have a good-evil morality.

5.) They don't stereotype.

6.) They don't bash on each others' beliefs.

7.) They don't hunt animals down to extinction.

8.) They don't think lowly of other animals.

9.) They aren't ever racist.

10.) They aren't ever homophobic.

 

i'd list more, but i want the mods to actually let this through.

How would 19 people die a year due to sharks if there’s 20 attacks a month? I don’t mean to be rude, but I think you’re just conjuring up facts to try to discredit the information I got from actual websites that specialize in this, as well as the info other people have provided. Please use facts to support your claim, Angelia.

But the higher the odds of getting attacked the more dangerous it is isn't it

 

and also this is ridiculously condescending

 

It's perfectly fine for other people to have their own opinions on sharks by the way

 

also also i think this is vaguely related

 

God made everything that lives on the earth — including the animals. In the beginning, the Bible says, “God said, ‘Let the land produce living creatures according to their kinds: livestock, creatures that move along the ground, and wild animals….’ And it was so” (Genesis 1:24).

And yes, the Bible commands us to take care of the animals under our care. One of the signs of a righteous man, the Bible says, is that he takes care of his animals (see Proverbs 12:10). Even the animal of an enemy was to be treated kindly: “If you come across your enemy’s ox or donkey wandering off, be sure to take it back to him” (Exodus 23:4). One reason God commanded His people to rest one day out of seven was so their animals would be refreshed (see Exodus 23:12).

In fact, the Bible says we must never treat any part of God’s creation with contempt. When we do, we are indirectly treating our Creator with contempt. Instead, God calls us to be stewards or trustees of His creation, and the Bible reminds us that we are responsible to Him for the way we treat it. We’ve often forgotten this — but it’s still true, and when we ignore it we not only hurt God’s creation but we also hurt ourselves.

opal, what are you talking about?? we’re not talking about our advances on technology or our morality. we’re talking about why sharks aren’t dangerous. don’t try to change the topic. 

 

why do you think sharks are dangerous / should die (like most other animals, apparently)?

 

 

if they die, that’s a large percentage of sea predators would die. that means fish overpopulation. that means no more resources for fish. that means all the fish will die. you know what a large source of food is? fish. so many people would die because we killed all the sharks.

@Opal either you didn't see my post from earlier or you are ignoring it. Most people who are attacked by sharks without provocation survive. Also, unlike humans, sharks have absolutely no need for creating technological developments or morality.
