    Myths About Sharks You Probably Still Believe

    One of the most misunderstood animals on the planet is certainly the shark. There are many myths regarding these stunning, regal fish (yes, they are fish!) whether it's due to their Hollywood portrayal or the fact that they dwell underwater.

    Are sharks really just ominous, terrifying creatures of the deep? Well, no. Sharks have a bad reputation as being the top predators in the water, but there is much more to these ferocious fish.

    Common Myths Debunked

    Sharks are ferocious, blood-thirsty man-eaters that wait for any opportunity to strike. This is simply not true. Sharks don't go after people. Most "attacks" on people are either innocent mistakes made because of low water visibility or inquisitive bites. This is the reason there are so many more bites than fatalities.

    Sharks are not preyed upon? Sharks are hunted by the killer whale, which, ironically, has a much kinder and wholesome reputation than sharks do. Off the coast of California, recent research by scientists revealed that orcas killed sharks in a surprising variety of ways, including by karate-chopping them with overhead tail swipes and by holding them upside down for an extended period of time to induce a paralytic state known as tonic immobility. Of course, humans pose a threat to sharks as well, killing tens of millions of them annually.

    Every shark has a terrifying appearance. Yes, some sharks, like the hammerhead or great white, do appear to be rather frightening. Not all of them are big and torpedo-shaped, though. The deepwater dogfish, the smallest of the 400 species of sharks, is only eight inches long. The basking shark doesn't even use its teeth for feeding because they are so tiny. They are filter feeders that eat minute organic matter.
