Hajar Sharks

 Around the World #

Sharks started to evolve 400 million years ago. And unlike dinosaurs, sharks managed to survive the great meteor, several mass-extinctions and ice ages. There are very small sharks as well as huge ones. There are those that just eat plankton and others that eat anything that moves or floats. All of them are exciting and impressive in their own right.

And somewhat frightening too! There are few creatures that we are so scared of despite the fact that there is more risk of dying from a coconut hitting you on your way to the beach than there is of a shark attack. Here you get the opportunity to learn more about them, look at the maps and read a few tips about how to avoid that shark attack that we all have nightmares about!
