Most of the sharks (99%) don't target human as a prey. I think people just watch too much JAWS and don't accept the fact..

And if you look in the shark's point of view, aren't we the more dangerous ones? Humans travel out to sea to hunt for sharks only. We cut their fins off and throw them back to the sea. More sharks are getting killed then humans. So who is the more dangerous one?

PS: just can't stand people misunderstanding sharks.

Agreed with the quoted statements. In fact, more people die of bee attacks than shark attacks, and shark attacks happen very rarely, and most of them in few specific isolated areas. Sharks only attack humans because the way they move in shallow waters (and the way they look from below especially if they have a surfboard) resembles sea otters and other natural prey. Most of the time, sharks don't eat the humans. Once they figure out that it's not their natural prey, they let go and leave. That's why you hear mostly (if not only) about "shark attack survivors", and hardly about "shark attack prey".

And like what crazyhealer said, humans kill a hell of a lot more sharks than sharks do to humans. And think about it, killing an entire being only for their fins, which is practically bland and tasteless but necessary for the being to breathe, just for the luxury and not necessity, is a pinnacle of vanity.
