How To Get Bitten By A Shark – A User’s Guide

Step one: Take your five-year-old child and put them in with the shark:

Due to their small brain size sharks are actually very predictable creatures. They are hard-wired to bite any object moving rapidly in the water. This is irrespective of the object’s size.

A small child’s rapid movement in the water would be one of the things most likely to trigger a shark to bite.

The parent in the video above makes an argument that statistically getting bitten by a shark is a low-probabilities game. After all only a small number of people (under 50) get bitten by a shark in the US pet year.

That is true, but the reason why the number is so low is because most people don’t put themselves near a shark intentionally and if a shark surfaces, most people run out of the water. Fast!

So don’t play the odds. Sharks are not dolphins. They are predators designed to bite. You. Or your child.
