Mary Lee

Our minds automatically remember frightening scenes from Jaws, a very fictional movie. It's sad that many people, especially those of us living on the coast, are not educated on these animals. Yes, most sharks are predators but so are domestic house cats. There are only a few types of sharks that are aggressive, they call them Bull sharks for a reason. We have to remember its THEIR ocean, we just swim in it :)
