Not only he displayed amazing skills, he also showed great wits. He tricked a Cyclops into thinking that his name is “Nobody” and he built a boat that eventually saved his life. Although he did many of these remarkable acts, many people would agree that these
During the process, as the sharks came and started biting the marlin, his pride was taken away bit by bit until he declared his own defeat. To prove my point, I would like to quote from the book: "He knew he was beaten now finally and without remedy and he went back to stern……" (Hemingway, 86). The fish represents his excessive pride because he suffered in

Even I have been caught, but a very kind human saw me and quickly helped me escape. He is the reason why I know there are good humans out there and I appreciate their kindness and how they’re fighting for us. My friends are captured and soon after killed for their fins, teeth, jaws,skin, cartilage and liver oil. What’s even worse those fishers dump the body out in the ocean. The fins are used for soups that supposedly cure cancer and other diseases which is highly untrue.
Everyone knew the type of pride Beowulf had. He had defeated 8 sea monsters and made it clear that nothing could stop him and his beliefs. Beowulf also killed Grendel’s mother after she too tried to attack. He put her head on a stick and showed his accomplishment.

This is because it contains a variety of raw, utterly human emotions, and usually presents the ‘drive’ for the protagonist to accomplish an unbeatable task. In the Old Man and the Sea, Santiago is driven by his wounded pride to fare out far into sea in order to kill the Marlin. He succumbs to his pride and kills the marlin, and then questions it “You killed him (the marlin) for pride and because you are a fisherman… If you love him, it is not a sin to kill him. Or is it more?”
Andy Dehart, Discovery Channel Shark Advisor, spoke about the North Carolina shark over fishing problem. The shark populations on the East Coast were extremely over-fished which lead to the over population of sting rays, a main food-stock for sharks. The stingrays in turn decimated the shellfish populations on the East Coast, leading to calm and shellfish shortages. This shows that sharks are necessary for every eco-system and their destruction affects us in more ways then we can imagine. Sharks are very at-risk for over-fishing because they take a long time to reach the stage where they can reproduce and in general only have a few pups when they give birth.
With an empty stomach, the large bull orca confronts the lone, yet cocky Great White Shark. As the Great White bares its teeth, the bull orca jumps out of the water, slamming its body on the shark. In desperation, the small shark tries to ram the orca’s eye, but hits its false eye patch, still injuring him. With his temper blaring, the seven-ton killer whale swims full speed at the shark, smacking his flukes on the small head of the Great White.
A vulnerable species means if their their birth and deaths rates decrease, they will become endangered. Humans hunt Makos for sports and food(Gray, 2014). For example, they make shark fin soup with Mako sharks. To protect the Mako Shark species, they are protected by U.S. waters(Beardsley, 2015). Mako sharks are fascinating animals.
The grouper is fond of crustaceans such as lobsters and crabs, as well as octopuses, and smaller fishes. They do not chew the food they eat; rather, they simply swallow it. But that doesn 't mean these food items for them would turn out to be whole once they excreted them, because, unknown to many, the grouper actually has a gigantic tooth which is situated just right on the corners of its jaw, which is used for crushing the sea
Odysseus then went to the beach and began to swim out into the ocean. After an hour or two of swimming in the ocean Odysseus decided to cut himself to lure a shark. After he did this he only had to wait a couple minutes until a shark appeared. The shark began to circle Odysseus waiting for a moment to attack, and Odysseus was following the shark waiting to attack as well. Suddenly the shark made its move at Odysseus, but Odysseus was one step ahead and he flailed to the side and jabbed his spear into the heart of the shark killing it.
