Shark Accidents or Shark Attacks? 1/2

Tigershark

Although the tiger shark (Galeocerdo cuvier) can grow as big as the white shark and is found in more frequent numbers, its biology and behavior are still widely unknown.

Over and over we read about shark ATTACKS in the media. This is an effective but misleading way of making normal readers believe that all incidents involving sharks are always the result of a shark attack!

  • Would it not be better to generally speak of shark accidents - at least until an attack has been proven without a shadow of a doubt based on verified facts?
  • Do sharks really bite "by accident"?
  • What about white sharks and shark accidents in the Mediterranean?
  • What do skin divers know about sharks and shark accidents?

Shark Info has answers to these questions.
