Humans are afraid of sharks for various reasons. Some of those reasons are the shark’s size. Humans tend to be afraid of bigger animals, especially when they are known to have killed humans in the past, which is another reason humans are afraid of sharks. One other reason humans are afraid of sharks is because sharks have been misunderstood and they have been portrayed as something they’re not. There are over four hundred species of sharks in the ocean and sharks are considered the most dangerous animals in the ocean.
Their existence dates back to even before the conditions on earth were almost uninhabitable whereby there was lack of oxygen in the last millions years. This amazing feat is however overlooked by people and people tend to not value their existence. People are increasingly influenced to be more terrified and afraid of sharks and the media largely contributes to this propaganda. People are easily influenced by sharks since sharks are one of the most terrifying creatures to date. The film, “Jaws”, especially, has altered people’s view on sharks and sees them as the real monsters that still exist in the world.
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.
It is true that sharks are one of the animal kingdom’s most vicious predators; however, it is important to note that humans were not naturally included to the sharks’ list of preys. Encounters between sharks and humans only became disastrous when the latter had trespassed and disturbed its domain so as a result, the sharks perceive humans as a threat to them or to their pups if they are nursing. In some ways, “Jaws” provided justification for humans to slaughter sharks, henceforth; it had received some negative reviews from other spectators and critics. Unfortunately, the number of sharks in the wild is decreasing globally. The movie had encouraged resorts owner near the beaches to show the brutality of the shark instead of imposing the advocacies that would protect these sea creatures such as limiting the passage of people where sharks were known to thrive.
Sometimes the male does too much and it is harassment to the female and then the situation becomes violent. The young bull sharks that are born are free from predators because they stay in the rivers and lakes before they actually go out to the sea and actually try and find a mate. This had made bull sharks one of the most interesting sharks because other sharks can’t harm the young ones and they can grow and become adults without fear of predators such as large sharks. So in a way it’s a protective thing and an evolution

During a study in March 2016 by Lauren Smith, a marine biologist who specializes in shark research, found two of the hammerhead species being traded were classified as endangered. This proves the trading market within China However, popular chain Fu Sing Shark Fin Seafood Restaurant owner Leung insists, “Why is it cruel to go for white shark and all other fish it’s not? What’s the difference?”. Given his position, he is meant to argue against the ethics behind killing a shark although he does have a reason.

Lester Friedman agrees that the audience becomes emotionally invested in the events onscreen: ‘while our rational consciousness understands that these are fictional creations with no power to harm us, we share the emotions of the characters trapped within the narrative unfolding before us’ (Friedman, 2006). Overall, the first shark attack shows how cinematography can be used to effectively create a thrilling attack sequence, without needing to show the predator, as what the audience doesn’t see is arguably more frightening than the little they
