Great white shark is more endangered than tiger, claims scientist | Environment | guardian.co.uk

piratesheart:

There are 3,500 tigers left in the wild, but there are even less great white sharks left.

And some people have the nerve to say ‘I don’t care, they eat people’. Dude, tigers are more dangerous than sharks. Tigers actually DO eat people. Sharks, more often than not, will bite and leave, not as aggression, but out of curiosity (after all, what good are flippers when you have flexible teeth?).

Respect nature and take measures to prevent shark attacks. Otherwise, you will be in danger. These ancient predators are more important to the ecosystems of the planet than you are.
