I think people just get bored and decide to risk their lives [or a limb] for that unique rush. *shakes head*

The Australian shark expert Valerie Taylor hand fed a Great White and was petting it and it didn't seem at all that it was going to bite her... and she *almost* got into the water with it and swam with it because she didn't think it would be aggressive. It was on a National Geographic special I think.

Men have an innate tendency to do crazy things and take wild chances. That's why men defy common sense by engaging in reckless behaviors like petting sharks, jumping motorcycles over burning cars and buying engagement rings.

That is one big ass shark! It would be time to go home if one of those mofos jumped up on the side of the boat. I was in the gym yesterday working out on the stationary bikes (that have individual flat screen tvs attached) and the guy next to me was watching some Shark show on the Discory Channel and it showed some photog who was in the water with the sharks getting part of his leg bit off. We were both like, why on earth do people insist on going in the water and prancing around with these creatures that will not hesitate to EAT YOU! :help:

Not "playing" with it :tape:When I was much younger, my dad and I would go to 7th Street Pier and fish for sharks. Not many people are aware of the number of sharks [nor the sheer size of some] swimming in the Bay waters.
Anyway, we'd catch 'em and lay 'em to the side. And do you know that several hours later when you go to 'process' /em, they are still snapping at you.
Soooo, fresh, live, Great White, in the boat or in water, I would not even go near. :scared: I'm brave, but I ain't stupid. :lol:

:lol: :lol: i think from now on i will no longer speak of "sharks" but only of "Teeth with meat wrapped around them"

for example:

Teeth with meat wrapped around them have keen olfactory senses, with some species able to detect as little as one part per million of blood in seawater. They are even more attracted to the chemicals found in the gut of many species, and often linger near or in sewage outfalls. Some species, such as nurse Teeth with meat wrapped around them, have external barbels that greatly increase their ability to sense prey. The short duct between the anterior and posterior nasal openings are not fused like in bony fish.

Teeth with meat wrapped around them eyes are similar to the eyes of other vertebrates, including similar lenses, corneas and retinas, though their eyesight is well adapted to their marine environment with the help of a tissue called tapetum lucidum. This tissue is behind the retina and reflects light back to the retina, thereby increasing visibility in the dark waters. The effectiveness of the tissue varies, with some Teeth having stronger nocturnal adaptations. Teeth with meat wrapped around them have eyelids, but they do not blink because the surrounding water cleans their eyes. To protect their eyes some have nictitating membranes. This membrane covers the eyes during predation, and when it is being attacked. However, some species, including the great white Teeth with meat wrapped around it, Carcharodon carcharias do not have this membrane, but instead roll their eyes backwards to protect them.

What on earth are these people thinking?! :scratch: I haven't looked at all the pics but this seems like the most insane thing ever :scared: There is literally nothing on this earth that could make me do shark-petting, I'd actually rather be shot dead than go anywhere near anything even remotely like this...I can't even bring myself to look at the other pictures so can't even imagine how crazy it must be to get that close to those beasts! :eek: :scared: Still even though they're terrifying, they are amazingly intriguing creatures, I'll just steer clear of them though methinks! ;)

I understand that the teeth are only half the problem. Isn't it the nature of the shark to use rip,tear, and thrashing motions when feeding? So if you eliminate the teeth [ripping and tearing] from the equation, you'll still ahve to contend with the tugging and thrashing. My friend, you'll still lose an arm or leg from the sheer force of the tug and thrashing. :scared:

Which reminds me...

Everybody in this world has a fascination for something, you know. Some people, like myself, are fascinated by sharks.

I think they are intriguing creatures. They're one of the oldest beings on this planet, yet the most advanced predator this world has ever seen. Its admirers just want to see one of natures elite in real life, experience what it is like to be in their proximity.

The outside world just portraits the shark as this devilish creature that eats anything on it's path. Luckily there are people that know better.

you might be interested in them, but you dont seem to know much about them... they DO eat any meal of size, that is the roll they play within their ecosystem. it doesnt take 2 minutes in a shark docu. or 2 paragraphs in a book about them to uncover that. :wavey:

I don't know how those 2 people could do it.Those sharks would make me so frigin scared,especially at night when you feel something rub up against you.



Back on topic,I watched discovery channel last night because it is shark week.The shark scientists if that's what you call them said when sharks are hungry they go after anything but it's mainly the human's fault if their bitten because they are in the wrong part of the water,wrong time of day,or have something that attracts the shark.It's more of us messing with their environment,but humans and sharks have to coexist.

Quite a lot of the 'big' sharks do that I think, I seem to remember hearing/reading somewhere that some (maybe all... :scratch: ) have tastebuds on their skin so they bump something to give it a bit of a taster and then decide whether to go in for an actual bite :scared:

I don't per say have a fear of sharks or a death sentance, but it's the one dangerous thing I can say I want to do.

I would probably have a heart attack in the cage when if one got close but what a magnificent beast to get to see
