🌊🏊Sharks are nice!🏄

Since its summertime and people are gonna be hitting the beach to swim and/or surf, i decided to make this informative shark post.
In the media sharks are portrayed as mean bloodthirsty and vicious creatures. Such as in movies like “The Shallows” and “Jaws”. But are sharks really that vicious? The answer is no. No they are not. Sharks are really nice and sweet creatures. I am a surfer and have been bitten a couple of times by sharks but i still know the truth… sharks aren’t evil creatures.
You may be thinking “but you’ve been bitten by one! How can they not be evil!?” Well the answer to that my bro
is simple, its all a misunderstanding. You see, sharks dont have great eyesight. They are blind as fuck. So they rely on other senses to find food. They see the silhouette of us surfers on our boards and they see it from a below angle and they think we kind look like seals, their favourite meal (as seen in the pics above). So they take just a nibble to see what the fuck we are. Once they realize we aint a seal, they go away. Why? Sharks HATE the taste of human meat. We disgusting af to them. Thats why the majority of shark attacks are just sharks bitting once and then leaving. They just wanted to know what the fuck we are bro. Its a case of mistaken identity. A misunderstanding. Have there been shark attacks where the shark bites more than once? Yeah. But thats rare and it only happens if the shark is either
(1) feeling threatened or provoked.
Or
(2) very hungry. Like, i mean STARVING.

Sharks just wanna eat but they dont wanna eat us. Its just a simple misunderstanding. As you can see in the photos above, people can swim with sharks and nothing happens. Its totally fine my dudes. So there you have it, sharks are homies, not hostile.

WECT.com (Channel 6 News) is reporting that several beach-goers are reporting finding abundant fossil shark teeth, including Megalodon teeth after recent coastal storms and higher than normal tides.  These teeth started being found at the beginning of October from Surf City to North Topsail beach.

Megalodon

A gorgeously preserved fossil tooth of Carcharocles auriculatus, a shark probably related to the Megalodon but lived about 20 million years earlier.  This tooth was collected from the Western Sahara Desert near Dakhla, Morocco and is 3.21″ long with beautiful enamel preservation and serrations.  It’s extremely rare to find large Auriculatus teeth in such good condition from this region.  Most are found broken and repaired, unlike this beautiful example.

A Miocene aged fossil tooth of a Sevengill Shark (Notorynchus cepedianus) more commonly known Cow Shark.  This shark has a large, thick body, with a broad head and blunt snout. The top jaw has jagged, cusped teeth and the bottom jaw has comb-shaped teeth.  It lived in shallow water and was an opportunistic predator feeding on animals along the bottom.  The ancestors of seven gill sharks first appeared in the fossil record 200 million years ago, and the species still is alive today.
