Sharks are one of the most interesting and the most misunderstood creatures on Earth. These residential sea creatures are closely related to fish and the oldest sharks were 400 million years back, long before the time of dinosaurs. This also makes sharks one of the oldest surviving creatures worldwide.
Although shark attacks have become sensational news, the reality is that shark attacks very rarely. Nevertheless, the fear of being attacked by a shark is common among beach goers.
It is interesting to note that the shark attacks increase during certain phases of the moon. Moon sets migration routes for sea creatures. Naturally, when the ocean tides cause the sharks to come into close contact with people, sharks get more opportunities to attack.
