  2. These videos are sometimes shocking and graphic. Please proceed with caution and note that they are not suitable for children.

  1. It is vey easy to demonize sharks because of videos like this but the ocean in their environment. We are the ones invading their environment. They are just doing what sharks do to live.

  2. The documentary video was the best as far as viewing the shark’s behaviour before and during the bite. I wish we could have also seen the footage from above the water. Fascinating stuff.

  3. Why not think of these from the shark’s point of view? The sharks are in thier natural habitat doing what sharks are supposed to do.

  4. Did y’all know that there are some sharks that will not attack? The Travel/Discovery Channel is quite interesting.

  5. Sorry I don’t like any of them too hard to watch I did hold a nurse shark while on a snorkeling tour in Belize.. maybe show some nicer videos next time.
