No. Very few shark species will attack a human unprovoked . Often, in stories one hears, a shark mistakes the figure of a human on a surf board for a seal. The best way to avoid sharks is to avoid splashing and not to cut yourself.

None, they are all out to kill, if you encounter one it will kill you. It will hurt, and you will bleed, a slow and painful death.friendusharks do not seek out and kill humans. Occasionally some sharks, such as the great white shark, attack humans because they mistake them for their preferred prey (seals in the case of the great white). Shark attacks are relatively rare, although I don't advise going up close with most species of shark without a professional. Most species of large sharks have been known to attack humans occasionally, although the whale shark (the largest species of shark in the world) are not known to have ever purposefully attacked a human, although an accidental blow from its tail could be dangerous.

The most dangerous shark species are the white shark, tiger shark and bull shark. The order of risk among these three species is difficult to establish. You might think that the white shark is the most dangerous to humans, however, the statistics say they are the tiger shark and bull shark which make a greater number of attacks on people. The difference is that the white shark attack is more potent and lethal, due to its greater size and power of his jaw.

I'd rather be surrounded by a group of dolphins, if I'm swimming in the sea, than a single shark. Though not all shark species will attack a swimmer.

All species of shark are carnivores.

Bears do attack and eat humans, but with different frequency depending on the species of bear,. Almost all bears may attack humans if threatened, but polar bears are the only ones considered to deliberately hunt and eat humans.

These sharks represent a small threat to humans. According to the International Shark Attack File, there have been only 10 unprovoked attacks by lemon sharks, all occurring in Florida and the Caribbean. There have been no fatal attacks attributed to this species. The lemon shark does inhabit coastal waters which swimmers, surfers and divers commonly utilize. The low number of attacks by this species indicates that it is a minimal threat to humans.

No. Sharks are a species of fish, just like humans are a species of mammal. Apes are also a species of mammal but a baby human cannot grow up to become an ape, and a baby ape cannot become a human. So, cod, bass, ray, etc, are all species of fish, but a baby shark is the only thing which will ever become a shark.

No. Only a few species of shark have been known to eat humans. Many shark species are too small to prey on humans, but may still bite if they feel threatened. The very largest sharks such as whale sharks and basking sharks feed entirely on plankton. -take this advice- NEVER swim alone!

Many sharks have the strength and size to eat humans but very few do. The great white shark, tiger shark and bull shark are all species which have been known to attack and kill humans. Positive identification of attacking sharks is very difficult since victims rarely make adequate observations of the attacker during the "heat" of the interaction. Tooth remains are seldom found in wounds and diagnostic characters for many requiem sharks (family Carcharhinidae) are difficult to discern even by trained professionals.

The Great White Shark has no predators at all, except for humans, so there is no need and no way to defend themselves.

All Shark species come in the regular distribution of both males and females.

Humans can't revive extinct species. All we can do is prevent their extinction.

No. The shark attack literally happened out of nowhere. She didn't want to be famous and she has finally gotten used to all the fame

Most likely no one will attack a whale shark specially if the whale shark is fully grown(50-60 ft) all animals are afraid to attack the largest fish in the ocean.

User Avatar

Sharks come in all different sizes, ranging from the dwarf lantern shark which fits in the palm of your hand, to the whale shark (cleverly named) which can be upwards of 40 or 50 feet. But don't worry, it doesn't attack humans. :)

A great white shark is much bigger than a bull shark. However, according to scientists a bull shark has the strongest bite of all shark species.

User Avatar

because they think they may be a threat. also in some countries they eat shark soup. the white shark is perhaps the most notorious of all sharks with undeserved reputation as a man eater and threat to humans. this shark can attack swimmers and boats without provocation.

User Avatar

because all of them(all baby species)is the meat eater
