Why Sharks Aren’t Scary Yasmine Hamdi Once said “Sharks aren't the monsters we make them out to be”
Although they can be dangerous, sharks are not as scary as you think. People think that sharks are scary because of their sharp teeth, their big scary bodies, and the fact that they can attack you, but there are very reasonable explanations for each of these things, so you need not fear.
The first explanation to why sharks are not scary is by explaining their teeth. Sharks have no bones and that ’s one of the reasons that sharks have so many rows of teeth. They have no jawbone so when they try to chomp fish the many teeth help them. Their teeth also have no roots which is another

They're beautiful―God, how beautiful they are! They're like an impossibly perfect piece of machinery. They're as graceful as any bird. They're as mysterious as any animal on earth.( See?

If there is one thing that we should believe it’s that sharks are not the monsters that everyone thinks they are. The appearance of the shark with its many row or teeth and the memory of all the movies where the main character gets torn to shred and dies and painful screaming death come to mind whenever we hear the word shark and although they do attack some people they are
