Ever since the famous and scary 1975 movie, “Jaws”, sharks have been given an incredibly bad rap. This is a bit unfair, however because they only consume around 5 human beings and one dog per year which is not bad compared with other animals.
It should be noted that sharks do not have a penchant for human flesh only and will, in fact, eat anything in their path- they are really not fussy! They have even been known to eat some of the rubbish floating around in the ocean. It just goes to show that they are one of our planets oldest surviving animal species.
