......2 Stoopid........ Our Legacy For One Of The Great Species Of The Oceans.......






.............The species above is actually a Mako - they rarely get to half this size now............




........Most sharks take many years - some over a decade - before they are sexually mature and able to reproduce.......

....Without these animals, commercial fishing will come to a halt due to the lack of control over mid-level predators like seals............

........And yes you SHOULD care - the loss of an apex predator in an ecosystem can often lead to the loss of the ENTIRE ecosystem.....

...Thank you Mr Spielberg............... when I eventually meet you.............I'm hitting you in the mouth.............. hard..........

I agree with you on that Damien. But I can't fault Spielberg for Human stupidity. Some of those pictures appeared to be taken in the friggin early 1900's.
I love sharks. They are not evil. They are just doing what nature intended them too.
