Thanks to movies like "Jaws," people have been pretty much terrified of sharks for years now. Not that the movie is the only reason; let's be honest, sharks can be pretty scary. In their own element, they're swift, silent and deadly. But you can say the same thing about many wild animals, so it's unfair to look at sharks as only ocean-dwelling eating machines. There are so many breeds of sharks in the sea, some of them posing no threat to humans at all and others that we know almost nothing about. They can be as mysterious as they are dangerous and also pretty cool. Just look at a thresher shark, a whale shark or a hammerhead shark! They're all incredibly different in the way they look and the way they behave. In fact, there's so much diversity in the world of sharks, you might be surprised about how much like us some of them can be.
If you're brave enough to test the murky depths of shark waters, hop on into our quiz and answer some questions about who you are and what you like. There's a good chance that we can find out exactly which fearsome shark is lurking in your soul, just below the surface. Take the quiz and see!
