dangerous predators


Think sharks are dangerous?  The most dangerous sharks are the Great White shark, the Tiger shark, the Hammerhead shark, the Mako shark and the Bull shark.  On average, there are only about 100 shark attacks each year and only 10 of those result in a human death.

You should check it out from their perspective, though!  People kill thousands of sharks in a year for sport and for food.  Shark skins are used to make products like any other leather would be.  Up until the 1950's, shark livers were used as a vitamin A supplement.  Shark fin soup and shark steaks are both eaten in many countries (Mako, seen in the top photo, is the most popular in the United States).

So...  Who's the dangerous predator?
