Sharks are best known as ruthless, bloodthirsty, man-eating, beasts. This, however, is NOT true. If any race is ruthless and bloodthirsty, it is.... US! Humans kill sharks for their teeth and fins, to eat and wear. We kill them for our own pleasure. We are beasts. They are not. Humans kill more sharks than sharks kill humans. Since shark's numbers are dwindling, we have to spread awareness and wake up to the cold, hard truth. We are killing sharks, and we, ourselves, are the reason sharks are becoming extinct. In order to spread awareness, we will learn about sharks. First, we will learn about their eel-like appearance, then their amazing hunting skills, and finally, we will go behind the scenes, and see their reasons for attacking humans.
Sharks come in many sizes, colors, and also shapes. For instance, the sand shark blends in to the sand, so that it can sneak up on it's prey. The dwarf lanternshark is the smallest shark in the world, at a mere 8.3 inches (21.2 cm).The cookie cutter shark is a shark that takes a bite of it's prey with it's cookie shaped mouth. It leaves a bite like a cookie cutter would leave.
