Sharks camouflage that is why they are harder to find. Camouflage refers to ways animals blend into their environment to avoid being seen by predators or prey. Like many animals in the ocean, sharks are also camouflaged. It can be easy to for the Mako shark to escape because the Mako shark is the fastest shark. This can fit in adaptation and protection.
For example, another great scene was when they used the Jaws theme to build suspense, when Matt Harper decides to build the cage and decides to stick poison into the shark to finally end this and the shark attacks the cage. But he loses the staff after stabbing the shark and decides swim after the pole, so Matt Harper hides underwater behind the rock. Quint and Brody decide to bring up the Cage and the great editing between the shark footage used and the blended boat footage when they are bringing up the cage and you see this great footage of this shark going crazy on top of the cage and then the shark swims away. The shark has finally submerged the ship and we see the shark on the boat for the first time while Quint is fighting the shark away the shark grabs Quint and kills him and swims away with Quint. Then the shark comes back to attack Brody and he picks up an air tank and sticks into the shark's mouth and the shark swims away.
Hollywood has dramatized many shark films to depict sharks as bloodthirsty, flesh tearing, soulless predators that roam the seas scouring for juicy, innocent humans to feast on. Bull sharks are known to be one of the most aggressive sharks; however, shark attacks are extremely rare averaging only sixteen per year (National Geographic News). Most of these attacks are also due to the fact that most sharks have poor eyesight and easily get confused between humans and other ocean wildlife. Sharks are much more than sea monsters slashing through the water. They are beautiful, fascinating creatures that have many interesting characteristics.
1. With only 152 shark attack fatalities since 1580, you are more likely to be attacked and killed by many other things. According to the Florida Museum of Natural History you are more likely to be killed by an alligator, lightning, a tornado, sand, do it yourself projects, or bicycling. Believe it or not, you are also 33 times more likely to be killed by a dog. 2.
One of the difficulties dealing with Shark Fin Soup is the moral principles behind using the Shark Fins within the soup. According to British Filmmakers following Carlos Maucuaca, Mozambique’s first native dive instructor and shark conservationist, stated, “An estimated 73 million sharks are slaughtered every year, with 110 species now facing extinction”. During the production of the film, it was found consumers are dying due to the high levels of methylmercury within the Shark Fins. The methylmercury within the Shark Fins is the reason for several Countries such as the United States warning women not to eat Shark Fins while child-bearing. Due to the fact, 60,000 children are born with damage caused by methylmercury.
A big issue regarding the slow reproduction of sharks is that they cannot keep up with the pace of the fishing. They only reach reproductive age as late as 12-15 years, and combined with the fast pace they are disappearing they are not able to recover the population. As of now 74 shark species are listed as threathened, and 11 of them are critically endendegerd, on the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) Red List. 3. The price for shark fin soup To make the worlds most expensive soup, inhumane killing of sharks are happening at several places around the world, its not just focused around China.
In this essay, I will argue that the practice of shark finning should be illegal in China as it results in major impacts on the oceanic environment. Shark finning is a practice of cutting a shark’s fins off the rest of the body whilst the shark is alive. Once the fins are successfully cut off, the rest of the body is thrown back into the ocean where it begins to die slowly. “It is estimated that 100 to 200 million sharks annually are killed” for a Chinese dish known as shark fin soup. Shark finning majorly affects the oceanic environment’s plant life and its food chain.
146 orcas have died in captivity, and 48 of those orcas have died at SeaWorld. The average person believes that orcas, also known as killer whales, are in captivity for their own well being, or to research their species, but that is false. Killer whales are tortured to do our bidding, for other people's entertainment and greediness. The orca trainers limit their food rations so that they become hungry enough to want the “food treat” after they do the tricks that are force upon them. Orcas do not belong in captivity, they belong in the ocean not in a tank.
They attack humans when they: surfboard, dive, snorkel, swim, scuba dive etc. The U.S.A is famous for shark attacks which results in major injuries and fatalities every year. The United States averages just 16 shark attacks each year and slightly less than one shark-attack fatality every two years according to Brian Handwerk, (National Geographic News, Shark Facts: Attack Stats, Record Swims, More from nationalgeographic.com). Sharks being a natural killer through pure instinct and having a numerous amount of razor sharp teeth (around 35,000), growing up to as much as 45-47 feet long, having massive bodies
The Crocodile kills about 2000 people per year and most deaths are caused by the saltwater crocodile’s deadly bite. The saltwater crocodile is the animal that has the greatest bite force. The crocodile can stay underwater for up to seven hours and can camouflage itself very well, but it is not the largest crocodile species, unlike the
